OK, Now Isaiah Thomas Just Wants To Watch Twitter Burn

By Matt Dolloff, CBS Boston

BOSTON (CBS) -- Isaiah Thomas may have been genuine when he tweeted a pair of eyes back on Monday night. But now he's just sitting back and enjoying the destruction.

The Celtics point guard appeared to become self-aware on Wednesday afternoon when, at 2:02 p.m., he sent out yet another emoji tweet. This time, it was an hourglass - perhaps to reference the mere 24 hours remaining until Thursday's 3 p.m. trade deadline.

But Isaiah surely saw the kind of dumpster fire he can create with just a single emoji on Twitter, so he knew he could send out this hourglass and watch the world burn.

The immediate reactions, within just the first hour of Isaiah's tweet, were a good representation of the collective hyperventilating that went on among Celtics fans.

What emoji is next? The safe money is on fireworks.
