If you can get to the end of this video http://bit.ly/afpRn5 (its a bit shambolic editing wise) then Wiggins says he has stopped doing it because the PRs didnt like what he was saying and he didnt see the point in putting out their bland corporate messages - and there is more than a hint of not ****ing off other riders in the peloton about it too.

There were a few others during the winter that... well, if I had to speculate, I might guess there had been a bit of alcohol involved, but it's hard to say without knowing that guy's personality.

In any case, it's about dXXm time for the racing to start. Legs are better for talking than twitter any day

90% of people with twitter accounts are tossers.
100 % of 'non famous' people with twitter accounts are egotistical tossers with delusions of grandeur.

Allright, I myself hate twitter, but this one pic of Basso's family he just posted really justifies the use of twitter, so sweet

Richie Porte is one optimistic guy

happier to be watching tdf from the couch, looks nasty! Hope the Saxo Bankers have a crash free day tomorrow.
I'm rather sure that what he means about tomorrow is the third stage... no crashes? Yeah right! Has he forgotten the Schlecks are on the team?

Default Twitter, it rhymes with...

I realize this thread is a good 9 months old (which is an eternity in InterTweet time) but with nearly 20 Twit-related ones to choose from, this seemed more appropriate than most.


Guess who got a new endorsement?!

Jeezus guys, didn't any PR people coach you in subtlety?

Such depth of personal insight. This is exactly the behind-the-scenes kind of info I was hoping for when so many cyclists migrated to the must-have app of the century!

Like the interwebs aren't already polluted enough with commercialism? MAKE IT STOP!

Now I have three more reasons not to use Twitter.
