Twitter Trolling….

Today is a new feature on Gregghenson.com, it’s called twitter trolling and it is basically me posting twitter questions and answering them right here on the blog.  Feel free to send me stuff you are curious about on twitter @gregghenson and I will post the best ones here!

Jon K, Hoke isn’t going anywhere.  Michigan believes the program is in good hands and heading in the right direction whether the fan base believes it or not.  I agree that the results aren’t there at all, but revenue is up (for now), recruiting is off the charts for Michigan.  You may have to take “this garbage” for one more year as Hoke is only into his 2nd full recruiting class, 2014 will be his third.  Keep in mind his first class in 2011 was throw together in 15 days and many of those recruits are not even with the program today.  Here is a list of players no longer with the team from the 2011 class.  Many of the players, like Jack Miller who was recruited to play DE, were not “super” recruits like the ones Hoke is now getting.

Posada, was 1 of only 2 OL’s in this class, which is contributing to the issues up front and the lack of a good running game.

If you are looking for a great recruiting page, check out Mike DeSimone’s Michigan recruiting site.

Zimmerman

Yes, but it doesn’t change the outcome of the case.  He is most definitely a turd and a potential menace, but that doesn’t mean he meant to kill Trayvon Martin.  The guy needs serious help.

FITZ

I do think it is time for Michigan to move into the “Derrick Green” era.  Fitz has two games left in his career, he should play, but the bulk of the carries need to go to Green and the younger running backs.  Fitz hasn’t been able to get it done and youth must be served.

If you’d like your tweet to me to be featured here, just send a tweet to @gregghenson and hash tag it #twittertrolling.  I’ll post the best ones.

 




 

Will THAT Tweet Get You Fired? An App Will Warn You.

twitter-artIf you’ve complained about your boss or job on Twitter, watch out for a warning from a new app called FireMe!. Ricardo Kawase and his team at the University of Hannover, Germany, created the tool, which tracks certain negative phrases about bosses and jobs and rates how likely they are to get the poster fired.

When FireMe! flags such a tweet, it automatically sends a tweet to the user in question, reading something like, “Can you imagine if your boss gets to know that you said: ‘I hate my job so much’. You said that on Twitter and the whole world can see it!” according to New Scientist. (I’d be surprised if that exact tweet was sent, since it clocks in at 138 characters with no space for a handle.)

The offending user is also sent a link to their FireMeter! score, a percentage showing how likely they might be to get fired. It’s based on negativity toward their job and how often they’d cursed in the last 100 tweets. The score is just for fun, but weighs into the overall philosophy of helping people watch what they tweet. For the record, I have a 4% chance of being fired, according to the tool, probably because I use bad words now and again.
