Mike Tomlin finally joins Twitter, terrifies social media world with first tweet


Pittsburgh Steelers head coach Mike Tomlin is a no-nonsense kind of guy. A straight-shooter, if you will, who will tell it like it is and doesn’t care if he hurts the feelings of any person in the process.

So, it shouldn’t come as any surprise that his Twitter persona would closely resemble his real persona. And his first tweet from his brand-spanking-new Twitter account lets everyone know exactly what to expect from the official account of Mike Tomlin.

In two short hours, Tomlin has already gained over 32,000 followers. And if he makes good on the promise offered up in his first tweet and it is a harbinger of things to come, those who do choose to follow him shall not be disappointed (via @CoachTomlin):

GAH! Run! Run for your lives! Mike Tomlin is about to unleash flaming tweets of hellfire like a dragon spews flames!

Or something.

I like how Tomlin lulls us into a false sense of security with a kindly greeting before getting down to the nitty gritty and threatening “straight fire.”

This just in: Mike Tomlin is one bad ass mofo.
