"A lot of talk... 'Cut Royce', 'Trade Royce', only a few players with my skill set in the WHOLE league... everybody knows it. #RedNation" -- Royce White, 6/30/13 on Twitter
And just like that, Royce White sucked me back in.
I was made aware of this tweet by my former intern up at the radio station, Andrew Stewart. He texted it to me, and honestly I had forgotten that I stopped following Royce White. That's kind of how my Twitter relationship has been with ol' @Highway_30 -- when he's saying things that are pissing everybody off (Twitter nirvana), I follow him, but eventually the barrage of retweets and the thinly veiled attention issues wear on me. So I unfollow.
And then I get trolled back in. And then a few weeks later, I unfollow. And on and on. My following of Royce White has evolved into something in between a Twitter booty call and a 90210-style, on-again, off-again Twitter relationship.
Right now, Royce's ridiculous narcissism, his open bragging about this elite level that's buried under a 50-pound tectonic plate of blubber on his torso, has me trolled back in. I'm following again.
