The Life of Brad Hodge viaTwitter

It seems to be a recent trend of news websites publishing articles mentioning what people are saying on twitter. It smacks of laziness and an inability to form your own opinions.

Lately a new phenomenon has appeared – an entire article based around a series of tweets from one person.  Exhibit A  – an article written about Shane Warne coaching the England cricket team based entirely on tweets. 

If I wanted to know what someone was tweeting I’d follow them on Twitter!

Having said that I present “The Life of Brad Hodge via Twitter”

Brad Hodge joined Twitter in mid December 2013, but he’s supplied plenty of interesting and questionable contributions since then including debuting with this:

His third tweet shows that Hodge is on the ball

And he showed his ability to read his own mind by following up with this

Hodge and his wife like different wines. Hodge prefers to drop a brand name

Where as his wife prefers champagne

Hodge cares about the city he lives in, Melbourne, and isn’t afraid to comment on issues, big and small.

Hodge is a proud Australian and doesn’t want to be anywhere else.

He likes a bit, ok a lot, of Slim Shady, providing plenty of references in many different contexts.

Even when talking about one of his best mates on twitter, former Victorian all rounder, Andrew McDonald.

Hodge’s other twitter best mate is former Victorian fast bowler, Dirk Nannes. Modesty is a strong suit,

as is honesty.

Hodge also seems to have an interesting friendship with South African cricketer Herschelle Gibbs

Some of Hodge’s comments raise more questions than they answer

Hodge doesn’t just like cricket

But he did toy with other careers: politics

and labouring

before the national selectors came calling. Six years after his last game for Australia, Hodge was back in the Australian T20 team.
