The Indians’ winning streak is breaking Twitter

New, comments

Twitter can’t handle the WWWWWWWWWWWWWWIndians.

The Cleveland Indians like to have some fun on Twitter, win or lose. It just happens to be more fun when they’re winning.

One of the many things they’ve done recently is change their Twitter handle to match the number of W’s in their current winning streak.

And, well, they’ve officially won too many and are breaking Twitter.

If you pay close attention, you may notice that their name is simply “WWWWWWWWWWWWWWIndian” because the ‘s’ no longer fits. If all goes well, they could be known as just “WWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWW” by next week.

An Indians fan was having similar issues last week attempt to reach the Indians’ very real official website.

But don’t worry, the Tribe are out here searching for answers from a higher power.

In case they want to keep the #branding with Indians somewhere in their name, here are some suggestions:

W^13Indians

ALotOfWIndians

JoseRamirezFanClub(Indians)

RoyaLLLLLLLsIndians

In the meantime, I’m okay with the endless W’s encroaching on Twitter’s character limit. Sadly the season is over, or they might get in the way of the 140-tweet limit.
