Chad Ochocinco and Twitter... A match made in heaven.
It shouldn't come as a surprise that the Bengals wideout has embraced the new form of social media as a way to express himself. Ochocinco has already used the application as a way to entertain, express, and now get back at the media.
Ochocinco began posting yesterday in response to Mike Golic's (from Mike and Mike in the Morning) criticism about the wideout. Here is the "tweets" sent yesterday by Ochocinco.
OGOchoCinco: Oh it's on again,
I want to fight Mike Golic now, always got something negative to say,
how about this, you've gained all that weight yo ...
OGOchoCinco: Golic If y'all don't shut up I am gonna retire and come take over your damn show, keep it up!!!!
OGOchoCinco: I am going to Bristol after mini camp, they getting out of hand with the disrespect!!!! Child Please
Golic didn't take the bait but did talk about it on his show today. Mike and Mike: Ochocinco Challenges Golic
However, Ocho wasn't done yet... Today Skip Bayless was a target of one of his "tweets:"
OGOchoCinco: Skip Bayless is a dried up yogurt raisin with no sports background!!!! He gets a check for saying the dumbest shit!
The Bengals wide receiver is back to being himself in regards to his trashtalking, flashy and boastful ways. As for Bengals fans... Just embrace it. Let's face it, the OC has always been at his best when he is having fun. This is his way of expressing himself. I am glad to see it back, and I can't wait to see what 9 and 85 are able to do this season with them both being healthy.
