Troy Aikman should probably wait until he has a better grasp of how Twitter works before he starts trying to spit game to the ladies. Everyone uses social media to flirt these days, whether they are 15 years old trying to score their first date or pushing 50 and divorced. Aikman, of course, falls under the latter category.
On Thursday morning, Troy tried to send a direct message to 39-year-old actress Mari Morrow and failed miserably. Not only did he send the message as a regular tweet, he also misspelled her name when trying to type out her Twitter handle. Here is a screenshot of the tweet that Aikman has deleted, courtesy of Deadspin:
Aikman has been divorced for more than two years, so you can’t fault him for making a pass at an attractive young woman who used to star on “Baywatch.” For her part, Morrow seems to have a good sense of humor about the flub.
@skinz4life1975 LOL if he was seeing me…he better not misspell my name:-)

We have seen far more embarrassing exchanges on Twitter over the past few months, so Aikman shouldn’t feel too badly. Besides, it’s not like he said anything inappropriate. He was actually pretty polite. I’m sure he’ll check twice and tweet once next time.Google+
