Tweet Relief: PokerStars/Full Tilt Poker Fallout
The PokerListings Tweet Relief is a fertile oasis in a desert of inconsequential Tweets.
Twitter is getting pretty hard to ignore. Especially in the poker world as many of the top pros have taken to the social media service like Scotty Nguyen to Michelob Light.
Fortunately for those who don’t feel like wading through thousands of poker Tweets every week we’ve compiled a list of the best Tweets in the poker world over the last week. If you're looking for more be sure to follow @PokerListings.
This week we’re dealing with a lot of buzz about PokerStars potentially acquiring Full Tilt Poker. Interestingly the story broke through a Tweet from Alexandre Dreyfus, who is the CEO of Chilipoker.
We’ve got the Tweet that started it all, along with interesting reaction from poker super agent Brian Balsbaugh, pros Eric Baldwin, Barny Boatman and comedy gold from FakeGusHansen and Joe Stapleton.

It's hard to explain the level of corporate hatred btwn PS & FTP.PS w power/control over major FTP shareholders is their worst nightmare— Brian Balsbaugh (@Balsbaugh) April 24, 2012
If the $750m "all in" figure is correct, I know of 3 vastly more lucrative offers the FTP Board of Directors passed on last summer— Brian Balsbaugh (@Balsbaugh) April 24, 2012
