Ben's Sports Take: Why the AJC should stay off of Twitter

Atlanta Falcons wide receiver Roddy White, who was named to his third straight Pro Bowl yesterday, is a frequent user of that Twitter contraption that all the kids are into these days.

White—or @roddywhiteTV as he's known in tweetland—likes tweeting about everything from his apparent affinity for Thrashers hockey to his sleeping habits.

Mostly all of White's tweets are in good humor and in no way intend to stir up controversy, but a recent "Twit fit" erupted before the Falcons game against the Saints on Monday night and White was at the center of it all.

The entire incident is documented here by the one and only Jeff Schultz of the Atlanta Journal-Constitution.

All of the negative publicity White received for his "Twomments" (comments via Twitter) forced the Falcons' wideout to issue an apology to...the city of New Orleans?

As ridiculous as that sounds, White made this request via Twitter in an effort to prevent any further "Twittroversy" (controversy arising from one's use of Twitter).

I think that was a pretty fair Christmas wish from the Pro Bowl wide receiver, who has much more to worry about right now besides keeping his comments under 140 characters.

Doesn't the AJC have better things to report on?
