I’m not going to lie, every six weeks (or so) I’d google “Desmond Mason on Twitter” and gleefully check to see if @DesmondMason had shed his anonymity and morphed into real Desmond Mason or @BrothaDez had given up the “artist mgmt” schtick and put his real photo up.
Alas, neither ever transpired so when I got a text from my buddy, DeShazo on Friday night with a screenshot of @DesmondTMason that said “I think this is real”, I was suddenly in social media heaven.
Social media heaven, by the way, is a place where Ashton Kutcher doesn’t have 10x more followers than the Washington Post and everyone understands that leading a tweet with a person’s handle means the only people who can see it are people who follow both of you. But that’s another post for another time.
I wondered, however, how adept the former Cowboy and Thunder-er would be with the Twitters (it is certainly an art, though not necessarily an advanced one) but he came out of the gates hot with these doozies over the weekend:
Welcoming himself to Twitter.
