    Dick Button on Twitter!

    https://twitter.com/PushDicksButton

    And he has a new book of the same name. I bet that's a good read!

    Wow figure skating icons join Twitter in one week. Can you handle it?!

    I see Sarah Hughes and Brian Boitano have chimed in.

    Although…as far as tell this is just to push Mr. Buttons new book. His publisher must have told him there was something called Twitter.

    Does anyone else secretly hope he starts an internet feud with Taylor Swift or something?

    He's publicizing his new book, Push Dick's Button. I doubt that he will be getting into it with anyone.

    It looks like he's using CreateSpace, which is an Amazon service that allows people to self-publish.

    I think you have to buy the book for that.

    That's if it's really him and not someone tweeting FOR him... (I mean I speak for about 5 different people as their "social media guru" so it's possible lol they aren't half as famous as Dick).

    If I had twitter I'd totally spam him with Pics of catch foot spirals and the message "Oh great, another catch foot. I suppose I have to like them because I see them so often."

    I await the loopiness and charming ridiculous quotes.

    Maybe he'll start throwing shade with The Skating Lesson and Skating 102.

    (I feel like I should add I know Dick won't actually do any of this - it's just that a man of his intelligence, vocabulary and candor would be a delight if he treated twitter like the tea room so many people in the twitterverse like to do)

    Holy cow, I just saw that tweet that mentioned Michelle and Dick have a combined 10 world and 16 US titles. That's insane that just two skaters can combine for so much gold hardware.

    USFSA confired that both Dick & Michelle's twitter accounts were the real deal.

    I couldn't help myself yesterday....I purchased Dick's book on amazon. Should have it in a few days and can't wait to read it. I grew up listening to his commentary and even though I don't always agree with him, I learned a lot!

    MFarone, when you get the book, and have read it, please tell us about it and whether it was a good book!
