Twitter tension: Dez Bryant and Skip Bayless

These Twitter feuds are now becoming commonplace. In the latest I'm-going-to-slam-you-in-140-words-or-less Dez Bryant wasn't pleased after ESPN's Skip Bayless challenged Bryant's maturity for saying he would try and reach 2,000 yards this season:

Just when I thought it was safe to trust the "maturing" Dez, he makes a "me" statement about 2K yds instead of a "we" about making playoffs. 7:22 PM - 27 Mar 13

Of course, Bryant responded:

Correction...i was asked a question.. i didn't predict anything...basically all i said was it was possible @RealSkipBayless8:14 PM - 27 Mar 13

My bad skip I forgot you and your buddy get paid to twist up stories whenever you already know the truth @RealSkipBayless 8:16 PM - 27 Mar 13

Well, there's a bit of truth to Bryant's statement. Skip Bayless and his co-host Stephen A. Smith are notorious for cynical debate which relies heavily on the sports drama of the day--real or created. 

Bayless didn't respond to Bryant's last email, but I'm sure he'll have plenty to say on his show Thursday.

In the meantime I would advise Dez Bryant not to do too much talking. As the adage says, 'you can show'em better than you can tell'em!'
