Twitter Reacts To LeBron's Return

WBT Editorial

Social Media has changed the way we receive news, that much is obvious, it gives us a new outlet, a place to have our opinions heard and instant access to the world.

But, what I don't think we really expected was the way it would change our reaction to news.

LeBron James, King James, LBJ, what ever title you will give him, has decided to return to his home of Cleveland, Ohio.

With that decision comes the flurry of tweets, Facebook posts and social media quips that spread like wild fire across our digital universe.

When we see news like this, a part of our brain wakes up and we almost can't wait to burn hours of free time (or time at work) seeing what snarky, poetic, or just plain asinine comments people can come up with.

It's takes ordinary individuals reactions to news, that we never would have been privy to otherwise, and made them public... Which then gives us the opportunity to voice our reactions, or in this case, just get a good laugh.

Luckily for you, I have a job that allows me to troll the internet for various entertaining things to share, including the reaction to LeBron's homecoming, thus taking the risk of you boss finding you perusing twitter during business hours.

Enjoy:
