â†µYou do if you occupy the world of Houston Astros reliever Chris Sampson, who is attempting to unload a 2009 Chevy Malibu on the social networking site. Here was his sales pitch yesterday. â†µâ†µ
â†µâ‡¥2009 Chevy Malibu for sell. Silver with blck leather int. 30k miles. Perfect condition. Need to sell now, taking the best offer. â†µâ†µ
â†µAbout six hours later, it looks like he had a nibble. Problem is, it came from John Wessling, who lists himself as an on-air personality at a Houston sports talk radio station. Quite possibly Sampson was being goofed on. Sampson responded to him that he bought the car for $20,000 last year and had only received an offer of $15,000 from the dealer. That's a little bit stingy for a guy making six figures of salary a year, but hey, wealthy people are often the stingiest people of all. â†µâ†µ
â†µWessling followed up this morning that on his show, which airs from 10-11 a.m., he was putting together a package to sell the Malibu and get Sampson a deal on a new truck. There's no indication on the station's site that the transaction went down, but if so, it could seriously eat into the used goods market that Cragislist has cornered. There you go, Twitter: new revenue stream. â†µâ†µ
