Awesome news of the day: Yogi Berra is thinking of joining Twitter
Twitter states that it is a "real-time information network that connects you to the latest stories, ideas, opinions and news about what you find interesting."
But let's be honest: Twitter was pretty much invented for Yogi Berra and his Yogi-isms -- all seemingly under 140 characters and strangely inspirational.
Word has it that the Yankees great is considering a move onto the social media platform. Jack Curry, an analyst on the YES Network, confirmed the news on Thursday, and Yogi seemed surprised by the quick response. That's Twitter, Yogi. About 90 percent speed. The other half is hashtag #Bieber.
