The Chicago Bears had a calamitous season in 2014 and were hoping to turn over a new leaf in 2015 after firing the general manager and head coach, but things are still looking weird at best for the team, as two starters bicker on Twitter over an unfollowing.
The trouble began when offensive lineman Kyle Long noticed he had been unfollowed by tight end Martellus Bennett, which he did not take kindly to.
Bennett saw Long's tweet and let the lineman know that he does not care about social media enough to pay attention to everyone's tweets.
@Ky1eLong why are you worried about who is following you on twitter? More important s--- is happening in my world than Kyle Long's tweets
@Ky1eLong u need to get out more. I prefer our day to day interactions in person. But that's just me. You have my number. Stop the bulls---
Kyle Long has yet to fire back, but things may be a little awkward at training camp if these two don't squash their Twitter beef.
Long has since started gone on "Twitter vacation."
