After a long absence from Twitter, Los Angeles Dodgers pitcher Trevor Bauer has returned. He has been quote tweeting messages from fans, thanking them for their support while attempting to move on from the allegations against him. But not every person on Twitter is so willing to forgive and forget.
Such was the case with a message that Bauer quote tweeted on Thursday. It was one that he really should have paid more attention to before saying that he was trying to make life easier for other players.
Los Angeles Dodgers pitcher Trevor Bauer might want a do over
At first glance, it looks like a straightforward compliment. Bauer is known for his videos and experiments on YouTube while interacting with fans on social media. He has been at the forefront of using places such as Twitter to engage with baseball fans, regardless of team.
But this is one tweet that Bauer should have taken a closer look at. The capitalized letters spell out a message regarding the Dodgers’ pitcher, one that he probably would not appreciate. Even those who spend as much time on Twitter, such as Bauer, can miss a subtle trolling attempt.
No one should really be surprised that he would be targeted online. Bauer’s own behavior on Twitter had been questioned in the past, and with his ongoing legal issues, some may feel that it is open season. There are probably a lot more overt messages that he has received in response to his tweets or that he has been tagged in.
