Twitter Fight

When we were little kids, everyone would gather on the playground to watch a couple of kids fight.

More often than not, the fight was usually lame and over something really. really stupid.

Today, we have Twitter and that's where the kids like to take their lame battles.

Like this one in Chicago.

WLS meteorologist Jerry Taft might be on vacation, but that didn't stop him from throwing a Twitter snowball aimed at WMAQ meteorologist Brant Miller's wildly inaccurate depiction of a possible 16-to-17 inch snowfall in Chicago.


The map Miller showed depicted information from one model. Forecasters typically crunch data from several models before making predictions. Miller did explain there was more than one model and eventually made a final prediction much closer to the general 3 to 6 inches the area received.

Taft's tweet after the snow stopped Wednesday kept the conversation going on Twitter, with at least one person "hoping for an Anchorman-esque brawl." In that scene from the first "Anchorman" movie, everyone who was anyone in San Diego media showed up for an epic fight.

We're not sure what Ron Burgundy would do, but it appears that Miller isn't taking the bait. There has been no response from Miller on Twitter, either on his Twitter account or the NBC Storm Team account.
