I think its ok as long as whoever is tweeting for him isnt doing it as him. More like just updates as to maybe what GSP is doing where hell be news about him. I think a lot of Celebrities do that. At least he just said it and was honest. I mean seriously if you were a multimillionaire would you sit at a PC and tweet all day. I sure wouldnt.

I don't really care about the tweets. GSP doesn't come off as a big love the fans type of guy anyway.

It is more a slap in fans faces when he puts on laying clinics and always promises a finish next time...yet never comes through. He is more afraid to lose than most any other fighters out there.

I can see this is going to be one of those 'full retard' threads, so I'll show myself out.

i'm all for him paying someone to tweet for him, but it gives me zero incentive to follow what is purely advertising for his brand.

where you at georges? not on social media.

This is pretty much the same as most elite superstars in all sports. Very few will do their own tweets, as it's more about building a brand and their value than spending time updating them on their lives.

Because I intended to respond intelligently before I noticed that you'd attempted to steer a thread about tweeting toward a discussion about lay and pray. I get that you're not a GSP fan, but the lengths you sometimes go to to disparage the man smacks of 'attention whore'.

GSP Pays his own sister to come and cut his grass for him, so that doesn't surprise me in the least.
