For the longest time, I had no idea who Justin Bieber was, and life was good. Now he’s grown so massive that even a shit-covered hoarder / fat cat guy / shut-in like me can’t seem to escape his reach. But he took it too fucking far now: on Saturday night he showed up at UFC 132, and now I’m 8throat-puke* blogging about him on Fightlinker:
Justin Bieber knocked out Ultimate Fighting Championship head Dana White’s Twitter feed while fighter Dominick Cruz was taking down Urijah Faber in front of a star-studded crowd at UFC 132 in Las Vegas Saturday night. When Bieber, who was in the house at the MGM Grand Garden Arena, sent out a series of Tweets that he was “chillin’ ” with White, the UFC kingpin’s feed got so much traffic from Biebs’ fans that his BlackBerry crashed and his account went silent for the rest of the night.
Considering Twitter is always about half a sneeze away from going code red failwhale, it’s no surprise that getting Bieber’d would kill Dana’s twitter. I hear they’ve got a dozen supercomputers sitting in a datacenter who’s sole purpose is to handle several hundred million squealing tweens’ obsession with the apparent second coming of Christ, Justin Bieber.
