Phil Jackson Joins Twitter, Forgets How to Spell

Phil Jackson is the master of his own domain. He’s zen, he’s a legend and he’s now joined the Twitter craze. But while he may be the master of the Triangle Offense, he’s not the quickest when it comes to technology — or spelling. Jackson sent out his first tweet and it’s making waves, mainly because no one really knows what it means.

We know what it means, because most people are capable of reading into things. But Jackson’s first tweet wasn’t cryptic in the sense that most tweets are, his is just hard to decipher because it’s not english.

And incase you’re thinking this is some fake account that’s fooling everyone, Jackson’s fiancé Jeanie Buss tweeted out an announcement prior to his tweet that @PhilJackson11 was indeed the zen master’s official (and clearly personal) twitter account.

Everyone’s having fun with this one and for good reason. People always love to get their shots in at Jackson when they can, as despite being perhaps the greatest coach to ever live, he’s not always the snuggleist of personalities and has his fair share of haters. But even if you like Jackson, it’s nice to know that while he’s a master of basketball, a future hall of famer and has more rings and money that you’ll ever have in your life, at least you can use twitter without looking like a 12-year old with ADHD on a sugar high.
