Twitter can be your friend, and it can be your foe.

Sometimes you’re not thinking straight. Sometimes you’re so angry that you don’t care. Sometimes you think you’re DMing somebody, but it goes public and then you go into damage-control mode.

It appears stud Ticats receiver/returner Chris Williams had one of those moments earlier this week, when he Tweeted the following to a former teammate about his chances of getting a tryout with the Tiger-Cats: “… they was about to bring u on but they fired the gm bro and now im beefin with my squad im not going back.”

Who knows why Williams put that out there for everyone to see, but a CFL source said he is genuinely upset.

Williams wants a raise in 2013, which is the final year of his contract, and still have the ability to give the NFL a shot next winter.

The only problem is it can’t be done.
