Oh, golfers on Twitter. They just can't seem to obey the separation of game and state.
This time, it's Rickie Fowler, who says his open -- though, by Twitter standards, wholly understated -- support of Republican candidate Mitt Romney has caused him to lose some followers on the social networking site.
Fowler tweeted about losing following after Tuesday night's presidential debate, during which Fowler retweeted Republican boosters Donald Trump and T. Boone Pickens :
Funny how people will unfollow me just because I support Romney...seems smart...made my pick...make yours and vote #simple — Rickie Fowler (@RickieFowlerPGA) October 17, 2012
Also...people who unfollow me...u don't have to let me know you did so...getting a tweet from u makes me feel better tho :) #yourchoice — Rickie Fowler (@RickieFowlerPGA) October 17, 2012
Politics in social media...it's powerful...make your choice and vote...it's free #America #goodnight — Rickie Fowler (@RickieFowlerPGA) October 17, 2012According to TwitterCounter.com
