The update came from a Charlie Sheen Twitter post:
“#NAILS warlock welcome to my pal @lennydykstra on twitter!! He’s a rockstar and he’s got a lot to say!! follow him cadre!! @lennydykstra.”
Yes, Lenny Dykstra is sold on social media. From jail.
We’ll see how far that goes before it bankrupts either one of them.
Dykstra’s bio says he “Batted: Left Threw: Left New York Mets & Philadelphia Phillies” and is “forced to tweet from a jail cell, but with your support I will slide home any day! – Nails http://www.savelenny.com.”
Some of the first posts from the (former?) Sherwood Country Club resident (in Wayne Gretzky’s home) who has had a bit of a legal skirmish involving money and things he’s owed to people, and things he’s hidden from bankruptcy courts:
== 16 June: “HOW ABOUT THEM PHILLIES!!!! DOUBLE HEADER SWEEP!!!! TAKES ME WAY BACK”
== 15 June: “@MikeVick PHILLY LOVES A COME BACK….WATCH FOR MINE #7!”
== 11 June: “(with a link to a Wikipedia page): STOP THE GREEDY BANKS by educating yourself!”
== 27 May: “”THE COMEBACK” WHEN A MAN LOSES EVERYTHING HE IS CAPABLE OF ANYTHING”
== 27 May: “David Einhorn got the mets for 200M? Wow What A Bargain! If He keeps this up with the mets, he will have more steals then (sic) Mookie Wilson.”
== 27 May: “This is my first tweet in a year. Why? Because the Phillies won in the 19th tonight! Motivates me to get back with my fans!!!!!”
