The way people have reacted to Pietersen's twitter goof up is disheartening. It was just one tweet about him being dropped and being signed by Surrey. He didn't tweet against any player/coach or ECB. He just got angry at being dropped. Is that something a player cannot say? When Jimmy was dropped earlier this year, he didn't tweet about it but commented in the media that "first he was rested, then dropped. Hats off to the selectors." The only blunder here was that he tweeted before ECB announced the squad officially. But he deleted the tweet and later apologised for it.
In the first 3 days of the 4th Test, I was thinking about what I'll post after the series, stats, pictures, the ones who blossomed and the failures and perhaps even a video compilation. But posting these after the series would mean nothing since people were left talking about how match fixing has affected cricket over the years, how it should be stopped and later about KP being dropped. Some sent him tweets saying that ECB have done the right thing since he was not performing, others abused ECB and told KP, they are with him.
