The Three-Day Progression of Derrick Williams’ Twitter Account

Whether you “get” Twitter or not, you’ll enjoy this.

This is a three-day glance at the Twitter account of one Derrick Williams (@bigdthatsme23), power forward for the University of Arizona (men’s) basketball team.

Beginning on Tuesday, January 18th, Williams began Tweeting smack talk towards the University of  Washington in snippets of 140 characters or less.

By the evening of Thursday, January 20th, Williams had humbly devoured all of his characters (i.e. eaten his words) after the Huskies defeated the Wildcats by a score of 85-68.

Join us on this journey as we witness the progression of Williams’ epic fail.

*Note: For the Twitter illiterate, the abbreviation “RT” means “re-tweet,” which in essence is the re-posting of a Tweet that someone else has directed at you. Example: @JoeSchmo Tweets something to me, @alexssn. Because I’m a nice guy and I find @JoeSchmo to be funny, I re-tweet @JoeSchmo’s comment under my own account so that all my followers can see what he has written. Re-tweets are denoted in the below thread with an “RT”.

  1. “ASU rival is great and all.. but this Washington/Arizona just got serious. ”

    This is my favorite. When Glasser is supporting his “rival” and Arizona cares more about us, that says a few things about the state of Arizona’s basketball at the current moment.

  2. “says a few things about the state of Arizona’s basketball at the current moment”

    …whaaaa?

    You guys are and never will be anything more than a sweet 16 potential team under Romar. Enjoy your few years of relevancy while you can because Sean Miller and Arizona are taking over.
    You still have to come to Arizona and if I recall correctly, you can’t win here either. Year 2 under Sean Miller and he’s done a tremendous job restoring what appeared to be a falling program.

    btw, come up with some more creative student section chants. “You need scissors” ?? ..really?? “Raise the Roof” ..oh c’mon, lame. I know we have some nice ammunition for the rapist on your squad.

    Feb 19th. You can’t win at McKale.

  3. Talking shit about someone’s hair or ugliness or shittyness at basketball is all in good fun, making light of a serious allegation is downright immature. Embarrassing for the girl and her family, and unfair to a player who may or may not have committed a crime. By, Feb 19, it will be a dead story, either that player will be gone and you’ll have nothing, or he’ll be innocent and you’ll look foolish.

    You got beat last night, plain and simple. No excuses, no need to be a bitch.

  4. I don’t disagree that Miller is bringing Arizona back to relevance. However, holding down 2nd place in a not-so-great Pac-10 isn’t national prominence yet.

    My comment about the State of Arizona’s basketball covers both ASU and Arizona, which both view beating UW as more important than each other (a sign of respect and/or rivalry status).

    The last time you won in Seattle was 2007, and the last time we won in Tucson was 2006. I think neither team has much to say about road performances in this series since Romar arrived.

  5. I think the Dawg pack has redeemed itself from a slow start. Any article coming up about the Dawg pack being back in full force? I sit across from them every night and they have been rockin’ since pac10 season started. GO DAWGS!!!

  6. Did AZ really just say that? So much worse than Oregon’s PIT.
    Class acts.

    Obviously you are completely oblivious. It is accused indecent liberties.
    That wordage is probably way over your head.. but no one has been charged and no one has been arrested.

    In the words of Lorenzo Romar referring to the Dawg Pack; “They have good clean fun’

  7. C’mon Cougs! Beat the crap out of these illiterate Wildcats! Derek Williams dropping the n-bomb like that all the time? (Last years Dawg Pack Dirt had videos of players dropping n-bombs left and right) I don’t care if you’re black or white, that term sucks and you’re an idiot for posting it all over your twitter acount.

  8. Ha ha ha this Washington/Arizona just got serious he says, after the game is over, knowing full well that the next time these teams play will be on his floor. Just got serious. I will tell you what is serious, Arizona has to play WSU tonight and a loss will have them in some serious trouble, given Arizona still has away games at the LA schools.

  9. UA’s student section is the one who chanted a terrorist organization’s name to a player whose father was killed by said group. This was several years ago, but regardless they, along with UO and WSU, just don’t know where to draw the line. By the way AZ, charges were not and have still not been made, no player has been named, though you may come to a conclusion based on badly released materials.

  10. Hahahahahahaha Arizona’s student section is soooooo awful. Have fun making fun of rape and death Mr. AZ…

    _______
    First off, it’s not the UofA’s fan section that chanted the Terrorist Organization. it was ASU. the player whos father was killed was Steve Kerr, and he played at UofA. way to post a comment about a school and attribute it to the wrong one, and not only that, attribute it to the team and fan base it was against. you’re an idiot.
    second, charges may not have been filed, but there is an investigation. way to post a comment that makes you look just as ignorant about this not actually happening as the people that assume guilt because of an allegation. once again, you’re an idiot.

  12. Arizona just beat U-Dub (not to mention Kansas and North Carolina) out for Angelo Chol, and Arizona’s recruiting class is number#8 in the country. Oh yeah, and Arizona’s about to close out the PAC-10 regular season championship.

    Guess who’s back?

    Enjoy watching our dominance and only being the runner-up or worse for the next decade.
