Philadelphia Eagles enigmatic receiver DeSean Jackson was widely criticized on Sunday after taunting the New York Giants sideline after a big pass play in the second quarter, effectively negating the play with a taunting penalty.

Apparently, he also upset Jacksonville Jaguars kicker Josh Scobee.

Tweeted Scobee after the game:


Well, he must have gotten some backlash because he followed with these two tweets:

On Tuesday, Jackson responded to Scobee's criticisms, tweeting:

It's worth noting that Jackson hasn't returned a kick for a touchdown against Scobee lately, so there isn't any prior beef on the field. It's also worth noting that Jackson is a more popular player than Scobee because, well, he's a receiver and Scobee is a kicker.

Scobee is entitled to his opinion, but by calling Jackson a "tiny bastard," he had to have known the can of worms he was about to open.

And what's better than a receiver and a kicker tweeting insults at each other?

Well, a lot of things in this world.

I've got news for you guys: Nobody cares about your Twitter beef. What Jackson should have done is let it go and move on, instead of going after a man he apparently had never heard of. After all, if Jackson didn't even know "who this guy is" in the first place, why does he care what he tweets?

Twitter was considered the death of journalism by a lot of reputable journalists when it first came out. Since, it has blossomed into the source for breaking news.

But when stuff like this happens, I don't blame people for denouncing Twitter, because it just goes to show how much garbage is out there in the Twitterverse.

My suggestion?

Block Jackson and Scobee on your Twitter accounts and hope you never have to hear about their tweets again.
