Trouble for Twitter
ST. LOUIS -St. Louis Cardinals manager Tony La Russa is suing the social-networking site Twitter, claiming an unauthorized page that used his name to make light of drunken driving and two Cardinals pitchers who died damaged his reputation and caused emotional distress.
This is why I don't succumb to the whole Twitter commotion. A few months ago a few Major League Pitchers died due to drunk driving, and a Twitter account with La Russa's name, wrote inappropriate "tweets" about them causing emotional distress.
