Falcons’ Abraham rescued after tweeting for help

Evidence of a rough morning for John Abraham.

And now for the latest sign that Twitter is taking over the world: It’s now a viable option for road-side assistance.

We found out Monday (via Twitter, of course) that Falcons DE John Abraham slid off the road on his way to practice, only to be rescued after tweeting for help. Kind of like a Bat Signal.

Abraham first tweeted that he crashed two exits away from work and even provided a photo (above).  Abraham followed with a tweet soon after that teammate Kroy Biermann came to the rescue.

Judging by the size of Biermann’s black four-door GMC truck, he’s the teammate you would want to come to your aid in such situations.

One, since when is there snow in Atlanta? Two, should be a fair warning if you have 34 followers on Twitter this might not be the best course of action. Abraham is rolling with 8,247, meaning there’s a good chance someone will show up.

You can now go back to whatever you were doing before reading this, hopefully feeling a little safer thanks to Twitter.
