COX Top 40 WAPE/JACKSONVILLE morning host MARK KAYE has launched a new Twitter account called @DumpThatDude which offers "GREAT advice to GOOD women in BAD relationships." It exploded almost instantly, as MARK's friend, NICK CARTER of THE BACKSTREET BOYS retweeted it to all of his followers and in the next 12 hours @DumpThatDude got over 1,000 followers!
KAYE squealed with excitement: "I have spent the last 12 years talking with women, working with women, and watching women get caught up with the wrong guys who don't appreciate them, don't respect them, and have no intention of settling down with them. Now, thanks to @DumpThatDude, those women have a place to get the honest, unbiased, and straightforward advice they need ... in 140 characters or less."
And before we leave this tale of viral Internet success, KAYE adds a disclaimer: "The advice offered by @DumpThatDude is in no way shape or form inspired by any of my current or former female co-hosts. Seriously ... no kidding, what gave you that idea? :)
