Bears teammates get in Twitter spat over an unfollow
The sting of a Twitter unfollow even affects NFL players. And now it has caused a public beef between two Bears teammates.
Bennett did not like being called out, nor did he appreciate Long getting so wrapped up in Twitter minutiae, so he fired back with a series of aggressive tweets.
I'm afraid I have to reciprocate your act. You have been unfollowed @MartysaurusRex— Kyle Long (@Ky1eLong) January 11, 2015

Can't these guys take it to text message?
@Ky1eLong why are you worried about who is following you on twitter? More important shit is happening in my world than Kyle Long's tweets— Martellus Bennett (@MartysaurusRex) January 13, 2015
@Ky1eLong I don't need this form of social currency maybe you do. If a follow from me is going to make you feel wealthier socially, then— Martellus Bennett (@MartysaurusRex) January 13, 2015
@Ky1eLong u need to get out more. I prefer our day to day interactions in person. But that's just me. You have my number. Stop the bullshit— Martellus Bennett (@MartysaurusRex) January 13, 2015
