The 12 Types of Nats Tweeters

The current underwhelming record of the Nationals has given a rare opportunity for the Nats Archive to study the effects of baseball performance on fan tweets. We have deployed our team of psychologists, social media consultants, and janitors to analyze the Nats twitterverse, and the results were astounding. We were able to identify 12 subsets of tweeters, and how they are handling the Nats downturn.

Here are our results, along with a sample tweet for each one. Which type of tweeter are you?

The EVERYTHING IS CRAP tweeter
“This team is the biggest disappointment, and will lose the series to the Marlins.”

The ARMCHAIR GM tweeter
“Espi to DL, Zim to 2nd, Suzuki to 3rd, Bryce to C, Rendon to RF.”

The ETERNAL OPTIMIST tweeter
“We will turn it around in Milwaukee when everyone is healthy next month.”

The CHANGE THE SUBJECT tweeter
“Can you believe Cindy Lou got kicked off The Voice?”

The SARCASTIC tweeter
“If we bench Espi, the Nats will start winning and we will achieve world peace.”

The CONFUSE THEM WITH STATS tweeter
“Our pitchers bWAR is 2 points higher when Span’s OPBIP is above .460.”

The FRUSTRATED tweeter
“I just can’t… I don’t even… AARRGGHHH!!!”

The UNFOLLOWING tweeter
“I can’t take you all any more. I’m going on an unfollowing and blocking spree! Starting now!”

The ATTACK THE OPTIMIST tweeter
“If you think Harper’s return will fix this team, you’re a delusional homer.”

The MOCK THE ENEMY ANYWAY tweeter

THE CONGRATULATE THE PLAYERS ANYWAY tweeter
“Hey good game, @kurtsuzuki. You’ll get ‘em next time!”

The DISAPPEARING tweeter

  • EffYeah JaysonWerth

    I think I’m guilty of disappearing lately, but then, Werth’s been on the DL. And it will all be better once he’s back.

  • PieroB

    Not bad … :)

  • Sandra

    I consider myself more of the sarcastic tweeter.
