    I love twitter for the sole fact that it is pure entertainment after worlds...

    Yes. But I do find it bad that a certian coach liked a tweet bashing one of their athletes. As much as I think kids should be held accountable for their actions so should adults.

    Agreed. Unacceptable and inexcusable. I had to look for myself to make sure that coach/gym director in fact did it, and he did. And the worst part to me is that it was in response to a cheer anon tweet. How can the industry curb the vile anon social media behavior when big name gym directors and coaches are responding to their nonsense?!

    I see no one paid attention to the Cheer Kids Reading Mean Tweets About Themselves PSA from Majors.

    Shocking, I know.

    I broke down and ventured into the social media universe and searched a Worlds hashtag. Yikes.

    First of all:

    If you even fix your fingers to type:

    "YOU RUINED THEIR SEASON YOU NEED TO BE KICKED OFF OF (Team Name) YOU ARE THE WORST. KILL YOURSELF"

    ..to a kid, you are an awful person. You are also a coward. Say it to that person's mom with your real name so she can have you prosecuted for harrassment.

    I'm thankful all the time that I don't bother having Twitter. It seems like a vile place to be a lot of the time.

    I think it's pretty dope she's comfortable to wear clothing that fits her gender, especially a girls uniform. Kudos to her!!

    I learned a long time ago not to believe everything I see on the internet, especially social media. It is crazy to me how people will just blindly follow without knowing anything about a situation (not just this instance - I see it all the time and not just in cheer). I prefer to do some research, look at more than one side, look at past history, and make a decision from that.

    Does not surprise me. Kids are awful to eachother now a days.
    I thought bullying was bad when i was a kid, but we didnt have twitter or instagram and facebook was still in its early stages of existence.
    I feel for kids who get bullied in this day and age of social media.
    But theres also always 3 sides to every story, your side, their side, and the truth.

    Curious — what is everyone’s favourite cheer shoe? A lot of my athletes prefer the nfinity vengeance but they haven’t been holding up for longer than a season. Titans maybe? Would love some opinions!

    Mine has been wearing Chasse for a few years now. She's only a mini 1 so idk how they hold up with more intense tumbling but they hold up a lot better and wash better than the vengeances she had. Used to wear proflex but they stopped making those, now I think it's the platinum. Half the price of nfinity, only had to buy more because her feet grew.

    Did anyone else see the price of practice wear increase significantly?
