I think that they use twitter for a fast feed back on what people think or want. I've never used it and have no disire heck the cell phone has become a pain in my butt texting too. As work believes your always avalible. Mine goes off 24/7 now.
I can see that, but I don't see throwing them under the bus as a social barometer. I actually think that would be an effective use of Twitter.

Look at Lindsey Lohan. Bad press is good press.
Lohan is a great example of what Omega1 was talking about, in the pure entertainment realm--but even she would love to increase her credibility, even if it's not essential to her moving forward as an actress or whatever she's doing.
But in the UFC's case, it is essential that they move forward. They're looking to be licensed in all 50 states, they're looking to fill Dallas Cowboy Stadium, etc. They can't just be in the public eye, they need to be appreciated
for them to generate any growth in their audience. Thus my statement is more applicable.
I do believe dana feels that any publicity is good, but that's been illustrated to be a false belief. It's one of the reasons why I think zuffa has outgrown him.
All manner of men came to work for the News: everything from wild young Turks who wanted to rip the world in half and start all over again -- to tired, beer-bellied old hacks who wanted nothing more than to live out their days in peace before a bunch of lunatics ripped the world in half.
