New Zealand all-rounder Jimmy Neesham knows his way around social media almost as well as he knows his way around a cricket field. Renowned for his humorous and engaging tweets, Neesham never misses a chance to interact with his fans and followers. Whether it’s cricket insights or non-cricket related banter, the 30-year-old seems to have a tweet for everything. Fans, in turn, eagerly await his next social media move.
However, it’s not just love and roses for Neesham online. Every so often, he finds himself the target of Internet trolls. The good news is, he’s equally adept at handling them, often in the most humorous or savage ways possible. This approach keeps the dialogue engaging, and his latest Twitter exchange was no exception.
Recently, a fan decided to question Neesham’s current form and IPL selection, stating that the player wasn’t performing well enough to merit a spot in the Indian Premier League. The tweet clearly got Neesham’s attention. Instead of ignoring it, he saw an opportunity to strike back, but in the best way possible.
Jimmy Neesham Shuts Down Troll with Perfect Twitter Comeback
Little did the critic know, that Neesham had already secured a contract with the Rajasthan Royals for INR 1.5 crores in the mega auction. Armed with this information, Neesham delivered a stunning reply: “I’m literally at the IPL right now lol.” The effect was instantaneous, and the tweet quickly went viral. Meanwhile, the user who had tried to troll him ended up deleting his tweet, possibly embarrassed by the public rebuff.
The incident not only showcases Neesham’s witty personality but also emphasizes the importance of doing one’s homework before attempting to troll someone, especially a public figure. It also further cemented Neesham’s reputation as a social media maestro, someone who knows how to use the platform for maximum engagement, and occasionally, maximum fun.
Moreover, the exchange serves as a prime example of how social media can serve as a two-edged sword. While it allows fans unprecedented access to their favorite sports stars, it also exposes players to direct criticism, often unfounded. But in this age of instant communication, quick wit can turn the tables, turning a potential negative into a humorous, positive interaction.
