OKLAHOMA CITY -

We've had good feedback from viewers, browsers and Twitter followers about a way we've handled some of our tweets. In order to make it easy for the pubic, we've gone back a few days and taken our recent tweets and put them together to come up with a Tweet blog--a way for folks to see a lot of tweets in a very short amount of time.

So, give us a minute and read some recent tweets. If you like what you see, we take compliments via email. Sending the boss a note also helps job security. If you don't like what you see, you can……..Oh, I wouldn't say that. We're open to whatever you have to say.

Periodically, a tweet can be misconstrued and people feel offended when they shouldn't. For example, my son told me his favorite OU football player tweeted a lot on one particular day. I asked him to count it up—just to give him something to do, really. He said his guy had tweeted 47 times in a period of several hours. So, I tweeted that his player had tweeted 47 times in a day—I believe it was actually something like seven hours. I added, "Jon Day is a busy man."

The guys on radio confronted me about it because apparently there'd been some blowback from the player and friends. I knew nothing about that and don't care, because it seems someone is taking themselves much too seriously. Good guy. Good player. And good tweeter. Keep it up pard. My son is counting. And he can't get enough. He loves you.

Having said all that, enjoy the world of Twitter. And don't tweet me about how often I tweet! Love, Dean

A handful of this week's tweets from @DeanBlevins

The #Thunder crowd has impacted the vet #Spurs. Gotta expect loudest & proudest #OKC arena ever in G6. Needs to be.

Filled out my Daytimer. Even though I'm rooting for #Celtics, I've written Miami in all the travel spots & game dates. Stunned if I'm wrong.

Congrats to Tim & Whitney Ritchie-won the Father-Daughter National Championship in tennis. Tim's Dir of tennis@ OakTree; Whitney plays @ OU.

TV ratings soaring to new heights, only the 1971 Neb-OU Shootout in Norman compares to the anticipation of the #Thunder hosting Games 1 & 2.

#Heat fans boo Celtics at trophy presentation. #Thunder fans unanimously applaud #Spurs.

VanGundy: "Take a game 4 #Heat 2 adjust 2 the speed & quicks of#Thunder. OKC has size, strength, quickness. #Celts not athletic like TDer"

Still fuming that Pacquiao got screwed last night. Fitting Mayweather couldn't c fight n jail--where judges belong & rematch should b held.

#Thunder-Mia keys? Overall, DWade has gotten better of@RussWest44 n past 5 or so meetings. Rusty must play w controlled fury. He can n 2012.

Who has the time to write 54 tweets in seven hours? Kenny Stills. Busy man.

I see where the average price 4 #Thunder v #Heat home games is 55% higher than the Heat's Finals home av tick (Thunder-$1,300 & Heat- $838)

Somehow Sen Holcomb sucked up 2 Blitz viewers enough 2 romp in PlayThePercentages. 1 good question re OU FB v #Thunder.http://bit.ly/MmHoDw

Check out our debate last night on the Blitz. Questions like: Bigger in Okla, OU natty title or #Thunder in Finals. http://bit.ly/MmHoDw

Stat facts: Remember when the #Thunder was down 0-2 to the#Spurs?--a 6% chance of advancing. Odds now give OKC a 61% chance to win Finals.
