A Call to Harness Racing; Twinky Challenge
Thoroughbred racing twinkeyers are in full force. People like @sidfernando have more messages sent than carrier pigeons have sent in four centuries. I have heard down the grapevine the man does not eat, his DNA has been altered which allows him to have power from sending tweets.
Where are our harness peeps?
I would like to see a few of you join up and start conversing with us harness racing degenerates.
Andrew Cohen (CBS News, Horseowner): You are a talented writer. I bet you could tweet Lou Pena critiques in 140 characters or less.
Kathy Parker (harnessracing.com): We need Kathy badly. She can give us updates about wind condition at the Red Mile in the summer.
Ken Warkentin (M): Transplanted Canadian racecallers are ok in my book.
Sam McKee (M): I have a feeling he could be the Sid Fernando of harness!
Moira Fanning (Hambo Society): She'd immediately have like 47,000 followers, because everyone who meets her, likes her.
Randy Waples (Driver): Scratch that, he'd say something wild and get booted for a week by the ORC. And he'd blame me.
Ron Pierce (Driver): He'd have some kick-ass one word tweets.
Harness Herb: I'll talk to him.
Chris Roberts (Georgian/Flammy): As long as he does not constantly tweet about his workout regimen, he's gold!
Darryl Kaplan (Standardbred Canada whipping boy): He'd get in trouble for it, but he should tweet. Maybe we could crowdsource him a job if need be.
HD.com's Bigbeaver: He could flame Auckland Reactor, tweet after tweet after tweet.
Enman (Owner, bettor, commentator): Oh, he's already there, talking nice-nice.
Nick Salvi (Racing consultant): He's on there, but he ain't tweeting. He should.
Peter Kleinhans: Lawyer, trainer of a world champion and he even bets. Cool.
Bob Marks (Perretti Farms): Bob breeds (horses, I am not sure if he has kids), watches and bets. Again, cool.
Alan Kirshenbaum (bettor, driver etc): He wrote for TV shows, he should be able to tweet real good!
"ITP" on Paceadvantage: It would not be dull. He would use the word "moron" for sure.
Gary Seibel (TVG/Betfair): He could share secrets on looking like you are 30, while double that. If TVG gets upset I know a few betfair players who play big, so I got your back.
Dana Parham (Bettor): We need a bettor tweeting, not just those crazy insiders. He'd be a good choice, plus he annually bets the GDP of Albania.
That's my list. Let's get them on and get twinkying! Anyone else you want to see?
