Rory: No Way to Bugatti Claim
By mustang6560 on 3/14/11
I love Twitter.

I used to think Twitter provided an unnecessary outlet for people - celebs and commoners alike - to complain. But now that I'm active on it and follow my favorite athletes, I think it's great! Twitter serves as a "check and balance" to the online media that no longer goes the distance to vet each source for every story.

Here's an example. Reports surfaced yesterday that Rory McIlroy was interested in purchasing a £1.3 million Bugatti Veyron, which he vehemently denies. And he took to Twitter to fight the claims.
Reports that I have bought a bugatti veyron are completely untrue! Where do they come up with this stuff!?

Don't get me wrong, it's one of the best cars ever. But a million quid for a car? Really? Not for me!

Golf and I are in a love hate relationship at the minute. Mostly hate today. More important things going on in the world anyways.

This article is total bollocks!! I'll never do anything for the belfast telegraph again!!
The story was originally published in the Sunday Independent (based on Dublin) and the Belfast Telegraph picked up on the story and ran it today. Now that Rory is fighting back, don't you think the Telegraph will think twice before publishing "bollocks"?

I think so. Because most athletes and celebrities are on Twitter now, it is easier to fight back when websites publish rumors. In the long-run, this will help expose websites that publish crap for the sake of numbers. If not, at least it will help followers on Twitter know the truth.

Rock on Rory!

i dunno.
"bollocks" just doesn't have the alliterative quality of "Bulls*it"

IMHO.

yes, but it has a powerful visual imagery vs the purely olfactory effect of BS
