If you haven’t already heard about the TwitGP that took place on Twiegi twitter this weekend, then you missed out on one of the best crowdsourced virtual online racing events ever to take place on the interwebernets. A bit silly, yes. But TwitGP, which came about as a result of the cancelled Japanese GP, was a clever use of modern media and user interactivity that created a humored and enthusiastic approach to twitter and MotoGP. One of the best parts about the TwitGP was the ongoing puns, and fictitious rider quotes that came from people all over the world. We’ve reproduced some of the best after the jump, enjoy.
