This is what's wrong with Twitter

I'll be honest: Not every we write at our GG Twitter feed is mind-blowingly insightful. For evidence of that note me intimating that Syracuse grads are unintelligent (who doesn't know that already?) or Nathan telling the world that he bought an Asus computer (you probably didn't need to know that).

But Red Sox beat writer Amalie Benjamin is bringing Twitter down to a wholly new and pointless level. Here's a sampling of her work:

#RedSox are out trying to demonstrate their athletic ability in the yearly conditioning drills.

Pretty quiet over here at #RedSox camp so far this morning. Pitchers and catchers are taking physicals.

Victor Martinez sighting. #welcometothefort

Youkilis is out running sprints today. #redsox

I mean...holy crap!...professional athletes are showing up to practice and actually *gasp* practicing. Thank you Amalie Benjamin for the insights. That journalism degree is truly paying off.

As an aside, no way Twitter is worth $1 billion.

 @#3 Thanks for the article. I passed it on to my husband and he e-mailed the following."I wonder why people have the urge to communicate pointless information? Is it an affirmation of existence? Perhaps its existentialism in action."Just in case anyone is wondering I'm wearing a fleece jacket with a navajo pattern in shades of brown with purple and turquoise accents.
