Poker Tweets: Brunson's Triumphant Return to Twitter!!

Brunson's Triumphant Return to Twitter!!On October 7th, Doyle Brunson announced that he was taking an extended break from twitter in response to the criticism he received after expressing his views on gun laws in the US. The 84 year-old poker legend’s liberal views on the issue came under particular attack in light of the mass shooting which unfolded in Las Vegas on October 1st, and soon after he announced twitter had “ceased to be fun.”
Fortunately for his legion of 432,000 twitter followers, it would appear Doyle doesn’t hold a grudge for long, and on October 7th the “Godfather of Poker” was in full twitter mode once more, and over the past few days has posted at least a further 20 tweets. As to what coaxed Brunson back to reconnecting with his fans, well he couldn’t wait to tell of is recent visit to one his favorite eateries, writing:
“Got back from my favorite breakfast spot, the Original Pancake House. Sign said LIFE IS SHORT. EAT THE BACON! Hmmmm”
It wasn’t long before some of Brunson’s followers and friends responded to his opening comment, either, with well-known vegan Daniel Negreanu hitting back with:
“If we are talking about who’s life is short in this equation I think the pig wins that one.”
Nonetheless, Doyle couldn’t stay off the subject of politics for long, though, and offered his opinion on the Iran nuclear deal in the following tweet:
“Because Iran is going to start a nuke war if they get the bomb. Israel and America are the 2 targets. There will be no stopping them.”
Fortunately, he has since moved off the hot topic and has since tweeted his views on a wide range of other subjects, including Elvis Presley, TV shows and movies, and his memories of Las Vegas in the 1950s. Of course, these were intertwined with tweets about who was the best US president, the conflict in the Middle East, and Donald Trump, but still, politics aside, its good to see Doyle back in full form. It appears he has also adapted his approach to dealing with certain controversial topics, too, and responding to a comment about Donald Trump, Doyle tweeted:
“There is no use arguing this stuff. I took an oath I wouldn’t get involved in these anymore, especially with friends that I respect.”
