|About that Paul Pierce Twitter post||05.19.10 at 2:40 am ET|
ORLANDO — At some point during his postgame press conference, a post on Paul Pierce’s Twitter page appeared that read: Anybody got a BROOM?
A reporter picked up on it and asked Dwight Howard in his press conference about it, to which Howard replied, “Am I supposed to comment on that?” Pressed for a comment Howard said, “Pride comes before a fall. Just know that.”
While we have yet to hear from Pierce directly, it appears that his account was hacked. A company called Athlete Interactive, which manages digital media for several athletes, including Pierce, put on its Twitter page: That is NOT @paulpierce34 tweeting — the previous four tweets are all courtesy of a hack. Looking into it.
UPDATE: The last four posts on Pierce’s Twitter page were all removed overnight. As Pro Basketball Talk pointed out, the other posts to Pierce’s Twitter account were all submitted via Text or the web, while the offending posts were sent in via Twitterific.
On Wednesday morning at about 11:30, a tweet from Pierce’s account read: “Hacked in game and post game while on podium. Disregard chatter.”
