#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.
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…
Pass the word. I’ll tweet and this is me.— keith Hernandez (@kher8286) April 2, 2018
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.
All my fellow tweetsters. I don’t go by MEX anymore. A long gone persona that blew away after retirement. Please call me KEITH.— keith Hernandez (@kher8286) April 2, 2018
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.
I hear from some of you tweetsters that my Seinfeld episode was on tonight on Pix. That means I’ll get a nice little check. Enough to pay for dinner tomorrow with the boys in DC. GN— keith Hernandez (@kher8286) April 4, 2018
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 hitting the final home game on Thursday at Citi Field, swing by the Marina Lot to see some friends, maybe meet some new ones, and responsibly wash down your sorrows before heading inside.
