World T20 Twitter Style


This post is an armchair view of how it would be if all the teams have a twitter account and Interacted with each other.

Before we start let me introduce something to  non- tweeples

wIndia – This is a Twitter handle or a username

@ZIM- @ replies are used for mentions to whom it is addressed

#desp – These are hashtags, which when you click on them, will show collection of the tweets under that hash tag

RT- Means Retweet. If someone likes the tweet, they add RT and once again tweet the same tweet to share them.

april 28th via snubtu- This shows up the date and the application they used to tweet. I have used variants of Snaptu, chromed bird, tweetdeck, web and Friendly.

Hey you know what? cricket has always been a sport which most of us cherish to watch on television. The thrills which we experience while WATCHING cricket on TV can never as same as with any other media like radio or internet! I even loathe to read about the cricket in the newspaper if I miss any match. Its just basically a quick look at the scorecard. Anyway the point is reading about cricket has always been boring for me. But man! this post was so creative! and liked the attention given to the minute details and humor was awesome! finally some place where actually i can READ cricket :P

And congrats for being picked by blogadda!
