So Let It Be Written, So Let It Be Done: Tim Tebow Joins The World Of Social Media

To answer the question posed in the above church sign: why yes, yes he does. Or, at the very least, JC has sent one of his most revered disciples to spread the good word and cast out the Godless heathens that currently pollute the today’s virtual Sodom and Gomorrah: that’s right folks, Tim Tebow now has Facebook and Twitter accounts.

His brand-spanking new official website, TimTebow.com, is chock-full of information sure to satiate anyone who has had a Tebowner for longer than four hours and has not bothered to contact his doctor or reverend.Tebow’s greeting to his followers, which can be found on the “About Tim” tab:

Thank you for checking out my new official website! I am really looking forward to using this site to keep in touch with all of you as I begin my NFL career. I may have a lot on my plate right now but in my spare time I would love to hear from and reach out to everyone who has supported me, on and off the field, for so many years.

Thanks for having us, Tim. It’s a real blessing. I mean, I feel real blessed to be here. Or there, on your site. Or wherever.

Elsewhere on his official site, there is a link which will take you to the Tim Tebow Foundation, whose creed is “BRINGING FAITH, HOPE AND LOVE TO THOSE NEEDING A BRIGHTER DAY IN THEIR DARKEST HOUR OF NEED.” That must be some kind of Broncos fan support group, right? Gotta be.

Once you have fully explored his site, there is even more good stuff on the tubes for all of you Tebowstines. If you feel the need, you can reach out and touch the hem of his profile on Facebook here, which according to current figures, already has…

Jumping Jesus on a pogo stick! 250,000 fans? Holy moly.

His Twitter account, @TimTebow is also another locale shining holy white light into the darkest recesses of the Hell-like, sinful internets. My only concern is Tebow might have to control how often he uses the word “blessed” and its many iterations if he wants to keep his tweets under 140 characters. Let’s take a look-see, shall we?

Aw man, he protects his tweets? That’s lame. I guess gaining entrance into Tim Tebow’s Transcendent Twitterland can only be achieved by invite-only…just like Heaven. Sigh.

The fact that I am destined to be damned to an eternity burning in the pits of Hell aside, there is no doubt that these forays into social media are motivated primarily by the good works which can be accomplished courtesy of the expanded reach it provides for Tebow, much like everything else the guy does. Good for him. I will not begrudge for that, nor should anyone else. More than anything, like him or not, the guy’s heart is in the right place and only wants to do good things with his fame and fortune. The problem is: why does he have to be so goddamn annoying about it? You want to know what I mean? While I wrote this paragraph, Tebow just circumcised another 25 orphans from a Third World Country. Jesus, dude, give it a rest.
