Rejoice, for Keith Hernandez is on Twitter, and it's awesome

#MetsTwitter is an interesting place, to say the least. It’s a community full of just about every type of fan there is: optimistic, pessimistic, humorous, self-depreciating, positive and negative fans from near and far. We come together to create a space that outsiders just don’t understand.

Just ask The Athletic's Ken Rosenthal.

Our occasional “shriek and shrillness” aside, I thoroughly enjoy scrolling through Twitter to see what fans, players, and the media are talking about at any given moment. I learn, I laugh, and I “SMH” at times. 

More often than not, #MetsTwitter is divided. It’s just the nature of the beast that we can never seem to all agree on something. Until now…

That’s right, folks: Keith Hernandez is on Twitter!

That’s a line I never thought I’d be writing. There are no sides to be taken on this development. Everyone is in agreement that Keith will help make Twitter a better place for all.

KEITH hasn’t shown the best Twitter fundies early on, as he’s clearly still learning how to properly form and send tweets out. But if Tuesday night’s tweet is any indication of how Keith will use this platform moving forward then we’re in for a real treat.

That’s an MVP-caliber tweet right there. Does #MetsTwitter have to be renamed to #MetsTweetsters now? I think it might.

We’ve been blessed to have Keith as a player, make a legendary cameo on Seinfeld, form one third of the best broadcast team in baseball and now interact with us on Twitter. We’re not worthy!

If you’re ever feeling down while scrolling through Twitter, just head over to Keith’s page. He is sure to put that frown upside down. I only wish he was able to highlight his tweets so he could brighten up our days in more ways than one.

Once that blue check mark arrives don’t be surprised if an, “I’m Keith Hernandez!” tweet is pushed out and pinned on top of his page.

If you're going to bash the Mets, at least do it based on facts. Jim Rome could have filled his CBS Sports Minute praising the Mets. Instead he completely butchered the truth, and dragged Sandy Alderson through the mud for no good reason.

Late last night Pete Alonso sprinkled a little pixie dust in the eyes of those clamoring for the Mets to bring back the black jerseys in 2021. Distractions are needed right now, and if a piece of fabric can do that for people, have at it.
