Exactly this. Who cares. Things like twitter and facebook are for losers anyway; if I was a celeb & "needed" one, I'd do the same thing.

Also, what Psycho said. lol

I follow him on Twitter, but he\they doesnt really post often, and when they do its usally some sort of a quote.

I'll unfollow next time I log in, no use in following if it isnt even him posting.

Do i take this the wrong way? No, not really.
Does make some sense though. The guy is probably training 8h a day then a couple hours PR, then sleep. And he doesnt speak English to well. He doesnt really need Twitter to get his face out there like other fighters, or how Dana does with the UFC or Rogan with his Podcast.

Ime all for Nelson here. My problem is if you don't use social network, or you ain't into that stuff then don't have an account at all. I think Gsp is an a**, the fans have got this guy to where he is in life. Has he trained and worked hard? Yes, but the fans are what's keeping him in a job. I think he could spare 5 minutes a day to speak to fans. I use twitter and Nelson has actually tweeted me, so has Lombard, Jon jones, Rockhold and Kongo. Those guys all took there time to tweet me and it was real nice of them.

Get of your high horse Gsp, and stop paying your sister to do your garden.

Social networking isn't just for talking to people, it's not MySpace, he probably has thousands of followers and he can use twitter and FB to update people on his training and new products from his sponsors like UnderArmour. He's not the only person who has people tweeting for him.

If its true he makes his sister cut his garden though that's absolutely cruel yet hilarious for some reason.

I never understood why he has so many fans. Does nothing of note besides being good at what he does. Says more about his fans being bandwagoners than anything else.

BJ penn has openly had somebody tweeting for him for a long time so why is it suddenly such a big deal with GSP?
