Rashad Evans, Meisha Tate Comment On Harsh Twitter Comments

0

Twitter is all the rage these days, giving people an outlet to vent their thoughts in 140 characters or less. The UFC encourages fighters use the social media app too interact with fans and while that can be great for the actual fans, what about the people have don’t have such complimentary things to say.

Two UFC fighters, Rashad Evans and Meisha Tate recently discussed it with MMAJunkie.com

“If I read a couple and get mad, and I feel like saying something back? That’s when I know I need to cool out for a second and turn it off,” Evans told MMAjunkie. “Because Twitter, it’s great, but Twitter will hurt your damn feelings, man.”

“People will say some outrageous things on there,” Evans said. “It makes you feel like, man, if I was there with you, I bet a million dollars you wouldn’t even want to think that because you’d be scared I might hear your thoughts and beat the hell out of you.”

“That’s every single day on my Twitter,” said UFC women’s bantamweight contender Miesha Tate. “Literally, every day. They don’t teach you how to deal with that. The UFC encourages you to be active on social media and have a Twitter and all that, but they don’t really tell you how to deal with dummies.”

“People who go out of their way to look you up so they can tell you they hate you, even though they’ve never even met you, chances are they probably don’t have an awesome life,” Tate said. “The normal, functioning people, they probably don’t spend their whole lives on Twitter telling people they don’t know that they don’t like them. The normal, successful fans of yours are probably at work right now.”
