Signs of the Apocalypse: Kirk Gibson is on the Twitter

Rick Scuteri-USA TODAY Sports

Yeah, not something I thought I'd ever see, but all signs appear to indicate this is legit. Diamondbacks manager Kirk Gibson has a Twitter account. Who had that in their predictions for 2014?

So the above represents the sum total of output on his account to date. Not exactly unmissable pearls of wisdom or world-shattering insight, but we'll give him a couple of hours to work up to that, I think. Hasn't stopped him from accumulating close to 6,000 followers in just a few hours. Curious to see how this works out: will Gibson be bitten by the bug, and end up rivaling Brandon McCarthy for Tweetiness? Or will it be more like @IamCodyRoss, who has composed a total of four actual Tweets since the end of November? I get the feeling it's more likely to be the latter, but we'll see how things progress.

Now, what are the chances we can get Paul Goldschmidt to join him in the near future? Okay, probably best if we don't get mour hopes up too far in that particular direction at the moment...
