  Warner apparently comes in second for 'MNF' (and possibly isn't happy about it) Before ESPN leaked to ESPN last week that Cowboys tight end Jason Witten plans to retire and join the Monday Night Football booth, Kurt Warner had been viewed as the clubhouse favorite to get the gig. On Thursday morning, ESPN leaked to ESPN that Witten was indeed joining ESPN.

There's some big news coming out of the New York media universe:

That's right: WFAN host Mike Francesa will be joining Twitter this week.

This comes after years of him ripping social media and swearing he'll never do it - from The Daily News in 2012:

Kanye West banned from radio station over recent comments

  Kanye West banned from radio station over recent comments A Detroit radio station is banning Kanye West music from blasting across its airwaves over controversial comments the rapper made earlier this week that slavery “was a choice.” Hosts Shay Shay and BiGG of 105.1 the Morning Bounce made the announcement Thursday on Facebook with the hashtag “Mute Kanye.”“Kanye has gone too far” with his latest comments, they said. They wrote that they are refusing to give him a platform,” according to New York Post."We don't want to hear Kanye's music, we don't want to play Kanye on our show, we don't want to talk about Kanye anymore,” the post read.

"You're never going to catch me tweeting, I promise you," the WFAN host said during an uninformed rant against the ultra-popular service back in March. "If I do, you've got a scoop. It'll never happen."

There's something really sad about this development. It's the end of an era of sorts for the fake Mike Francesa accounts, who so thoroughly entertained fans and listeners for years by tweeting in Francesa's heavy NEW YAWK accent, which resulted in stuff like this:

It's not like those accounts will suddenly disappear on Friday. But they're so much more entertaining than what Francesa might type out on Twitter, particularly because Francesa said he doesn't have time to reply to everyone who reaches out on there. So I'm hoping that having the real Francesa on social media doesn't make the fake accounts take a step back.

At the same time, it's going to be amazing - we're going to watch in real time how he wraps his head around this phenomenon that he's years too late in joining. Will his head explode when he sees an Odell Beckham Jr. tweet that he thinks proves the wideout is a distraction? Will he accidentally tweet something that was supposed to be a direct message? I'm excited for the moment he tweets a hot take during the NBA Finals and gets hundreds of angry responses, then talks about how this is why he never wanted to join "Twittah" to begin with.

Who knows? Maybe that's more fodder for the faux Francesas, and it gets really meta and weird. That would probably be the best outcome.
