Twitter is a great way for professional athletes to connect with fans, but some Twitter accounts are nigh unreadable, rife with misspellings and grammatical errors. A group of bright second-graders at Elmwood Franklin School in Buffalo practiced their grammar, spelling, and punctuation skills by correcting a batch of embarrassing tweets sent out by NFL players, including Super Bowl bound San Francisco 49er Chris Culliver.
Titus Young starts off strong by picking the right form of “It’s,” but it’s all downhill from there.
This was just a simple typo by Wes Welker, but it’s a good reminder to remain vigilant while tweeting before a class of second-graders break down your errors.
