George Kittle is here to remind all of you that he does peruse Twitter for what’s being said out there by the pool of 49ers content creators.

Despite pulling in millions of dollars and being in the national spotlight for playing a game, it’s nevertheless tough being a professional athlete.

No matter how beloved you are, there are going to be critics. People who couldn’t perform at that high of a sports level in a thousand lifetimes spew out thoughts and opinions about those who do.

Welcome to the world of sports talk.

Perhaps those athletes tune out all the chatter. But, in the case of San Francisco 49ers tight end George Kittle, we know he pays attention.

Granted, Kittle is among the most beloved players in the league right now, not just among Niners fans. His addictive and outgoing personality makes it easy to be a fan.

And, for content creators (including all of us here at Niner Noise), Kittle is a fun subject to discuss.

That doesn’t mean things won’t get a bit chippy between the two parties, though.

George Kittle claps back at 49ers content creators

Thankfully, no one here at Niner Noise had their egos hurt by this story. But, for those San Francisco fans following @Coach_Yac and @StatsOnFire on Twitter, you might have seen the All-Pro tight end fire back some shots recently.

They weren’t wholly unsolicited, though.

The exchange appeared to start when Kittle liked one of @Coach_Yac’s shared posts of quarterback Trey Lance throwing at an undisclosed practice location (Kansas City Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes was there, too).

@Coach_Yac shared it, but that prompted a pretty spicy threat that should generate a few laughs:

OK, not really. Kittle does bring up a point. Content creators (including ourselves) will make big deals out of almost nothing, especially at a time of year when almost nothing is going on.

However, if that’s what the job requires, it’s ultimately what happens.

It doesn’t sound as if there’s serious beef between Kittle and these two content creators in particular, though. Rather it’s probably good for a nice quiet laugh.

Unless Kittle calls anyone here at Niner Noise out, right?
