Adam Wainwright joined the 21st Century today when he signed up for Twitter. Early reviews are mixed.

His handle (@UncleCharlie50) is pretty good. His first tweet...not so much. 

There's two ways to look at this: Either he doesn't consider this his first tweet; or he's giving his followers a pipe shot, allowing them to make the easy "That's your first tweet joke." Either way, it's pretty lame.

While Wainwright might not use Twitter to flirt with celebrities, perhaps Joel Embiid could still teach him a thing or two
