The Derek Jeter Retirement Tour made its first stop today: Reaction city. Hop aboard!

Derek Jeter announced his retirement today in a really long, probably pretty classy Facebook post:

How does the world react? Let's take to twitter to find out.

Daaaaaaaaaaaaaaamn, the Yankees get too much coverage

Yes yes, because the Yankees weren't going to be saturating coverage anyway, nor are they in a gigantic market and have a gigantic (if often douchey) fanbase.

LOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOL, something about A-Rod

I saw it all along

Jeter was old and that's funny because he's old, rite

Victory tour jokes

He actually was pretty good tho

Well then! See better Jeter tweets out there? Post 'em in the comments.
