There are some Twitter accounts that you follow because you genuinely value the tweets that come from them. Great Twitter accounts can provide up-to-the-second news and insider information, or they can give you a window inside the life of celebs and other high-profile newsmakers. Some Twitter accounts you follow because the person tweets tidbits that are relevant to your everyday life or line of work.
And some Twitter accounts you follow because it would simply be a disservice to yourself not to follow them, even if you can't put your finger on why. Former MLB star Jose Canseco's Twitter account falls into this category.
Canseco's Twitter account (472,000 followers) has been on the radar for a little while now. Not only is he very active on the site, but his tweets oftentimes range from WTF to seriously, WTF. It's both entertaining and bizarre, unfiltered and occasionally offensive. Last month it was briefly deactivated, but the perplexing string of tweets resumed very shortly thereafter.
Now, Canseco's latest Twitter activity is holding up to the high standards of odd set by previous activity. He has just used his account to notify his followers of a new membership website that will involve live streamed chats, inside baseball footage and, well, weekly injections.
The full tweet:
You will all join my website cause it will be so easy and cost almost nothing.you can talk to me direct using a video feed and get to see live baseball footage of playing so you haters can make fun of me ,also you will see me inject my weekly dosage of testosterone and lots more
Also, he'll slap a hater.
It will be the most interactive website ever .I complete you and slap a hater
So, there you go. Now word on when this members only experience will open up. Also, no word on how he plans to mix the interactive testosterone experience with his other recent aspirations:
I want to run for office
