It's a Saturday, the world hasn't ended, and you know what that means. 

Steve Elkington is making enemies on Twitter again.

This time the victim (if you can call him that) is Ian Poulter. It started with this tweet by Elkington:

Somebody alerted Poulter by tagging him in a tweet.

Poulter eventually tracked down Elkington (who didn't tag him) and responded.

Then Elkington responded by badly misspelling "allowed":

Poulter ended it with this:

The spat doesn't really surprise me that much given how outspoken both Elkington and Poulter are. I'm not a Poulter fanboy or anything but it doesn't seem like Elking makes a ton of friends on tour with his antics.

He does love to rile himself up a star though and Poulter can pretty easily find himself embroiled in a Twitter war (if we can even call it that). good on him for taking the high road (eventually).
