Everybody loves a good Twitter War. So when Ian Poulter and Steve Elkington got into a little tiff on Saturday, the world was treated to another Grade-A bickering between the two fan favorites.Elkington took the first swing by replying to another Twitter user regarding Poulter’s absence from this week’s Hyundai Tournament of Champions:“@ghostofhogan: Where’s Poulter Shooting in the winners tournament ?…..// don’t think he’s playing chief… Waxin the Bentley— Steve Elkington (@elkpga) January 3, 2014 Poulter does have quite the impressive car collection. In his typical passive-aggressive manner, Poulter responded to Elkington.It’s ok he knows he is a total tool. He’s with all his mates. @theconork13 The guy who likes to run his mouth @elkpga sending crap your way— Ian Poulter (@IanJamesPoulter) January 3, 2014 Elkington and Poulter eventually cut out the middle-men and addressed each other one-on-one.Actually @elkpga I haven’t blocked you I just don’t follow tools. You can give me a lesson in Scotland if you fancy. I will bring the fans.— Ian Poulter (@IanJamesPoulter) January 4, 2014 A little more grab-ass followed from Elkington.I’m talking about you & adding your twitter name in @elkpga. Instead of talking about people behind there backs without twitter name.— Ian Poulter (@IanJamesPoulter) January 4, 2014 Finally, Poulter decided to take the “high road” and ended the dispute with this tweet:Sorry friends for being dragged down by @elkpga. But I don’t put up with people who trash talk behind someones back. It’s Cowardly— Ian Poulter (@IanJamesPoulter) January 4, 2014 Neither Poulter nor Elkington are afraid of speaking their minds, especially on social media. This is just another glaring example of why these two can’t have nice Twitter “things”.Related Link: Tweek in Review – This Week’s Best TweetsOther Hot Links:- Jason Dufner Can Watch BCS Title Game If He Plays Fast in Hawaii- Phil Mickelson Spotted at San Diego Chargers Game- Miguel Angel Jimenez Will Make You Smile, Limber
