Mark Cuban received a $25,000 fine on Sunday from the NBA after tweeting trash on his Twitter page. Cuban complained that the referees didn't call a technical foul on Nuggets guard J.R. Smith for taunting Antoine Wright after a missed shot during the Mavericks 103-101 loss to Denver on Sunday.

Lesson learned: There is a price to pay for talking and now apparently tweeting trash. Social networking sites are not unnoticed. Twitter and Mark Cuban’s PR rating just went through the roof. Something is working. 13,000 people apparently subscribe to Cuban’s Twitter page and I’m sure even more will now because of his Twranting!
