Marlon Wayans’ new movie, “A Haunted House 2,” hits theaters tonight. I know this because I follow Robert Griffin III on Twitter.

Had I been following Mike Trout before today, I would’ve known this yesterday.

Trout, you see, is also boys with Marlon Wayans and says the movie is hilarious, and — wait a second. Are those two tweets identical?
In promoting the movie, it appears Griffin, Trout and others simply copy and pasted a suggested tweet from a PR person. LeBron James — the seasoned vet that he is — changed his tweet a bit.

Redskins wide receiver DeSean Jackson, who has yet to weigh in on “A Haunted House 2,” made a more embarrassing social media goof at the 2012 ESPYs, when he posted and later deleted the following tweet:
DeSean, can you please tweet this for the ESPYs party tonight: “Chillin’ at the @ESPYs #NokiaPreParty. It’s awesome.”
