Blake Shelton Wants to Be a Less Controversial Tweeter In The New Year…Not Off To The Best Start. Blake Shelton recently shared his 2013 New Years Resolution with US Weekly stating, “I need to work on being a less controversial tweeter.” Now, this is an admirable resolution, sure, but I for one particularly enjoy the outlandishness of Shelton’s tweets. His twitter feed is pretty much always a good place to go for a good laugh! Those of who like to get a chuckle from seeing what crazy thing Blake had to say, I don’t think we have too much to fear. It’s not looking like his New Year’s resolution is sticking so far. Check it out below. Blake Shelton Tweets: Controversial or Not? Hey @tmkansas…. Kiss my ass. That’s all… — Blake Shelton (@blakeshelton) January 4, 2013 “@okwildlifedept: how about an #FF for your friends at ODWC? It’s almost paddlefish season!”Will this get me out of a ticket?! — Blake Shelton (@blakeshelton) January 4, 2013 Nothing helps me make up my mind about the issues of this country like the tweets of celebrities. Thank you for your endless knowledge.. — Blake Shelton (@blakeshelton) January 4, 2013 “@ladysiarra80: Having a bad day, need a falling down, pissing myself laugh. Whatcha got?”Well I can’t post a picture of it!!! — Blake Shelton (@blakeshelton) January 3, 2013 Be sure to join in on the fun and follow @blakeshelton!
