Whoever the Pac-12's media relations person is probably didn't consider the complete Twitter hijacking that took place today.
Today is Pac-12 Media Day and new Arizona State head coach Todd Graham is there, no doubt waiting to have a word with said media relations person after Pitt fans swarmed on Twitter using #AskASU. At least Todd has Penni's family there to console him.
There was a bunch of quality #AskASU tweets, but here are some of the best.

#AskASU coach, any thoughts on changing ASU's tagline from "fear the fork" to "fear the SMS"???— Will Graulich (@Will_Graulich) July 24, 2012
ASU fans, get ready. I hear Graham has family in Arkansas...
More fun after the jump:
#AskASU Todd, PSU had to vacate wins due to something horrible but amazing you were able to vacate wins at Pitt simple by coaching. How?— Robert(@PittsburghIdiot) July 24, 2012
Coach, can we get a list of places you have family so we can figure out your next coaching job? #AskASU— Brian. (@SmithBrianA) July 24, 2012
The correct answer is everywhere.
Coach, will yours son's sun devil costume actually look like a sun devil? Or will it be deformed? #AskASU— Matthew Kaplan (@mdk8991) July 24, 2012
Now that you are on record as having a two year plan instead of one, where are you looking to move to after 2013? #AskASU— TFW® Bryan (@FearTheStache) July 24, 2012
I'm waiting for him to simply pull a school name out of a hat.
Any chance I can still transfer and be your designated pooch punter again? #AskASU— Tino Sunseri (@TheTinoSunseri) July 24, 2012

I have three steps leading to my front door. Is that considered part of the porch and therefore off-limits to the athletic dept? #AskASU— David Lawrence Hall (@PittDLHall) July 24, 2012
Obviously, there are much more. Feel free to add your favorites in the comments section below.
Pitt fans, we haven't had a lot to cheer about over the past few football seasons, but you all did a great job today. We'll see you next year for #AskArkansas.
UPDATE: Hey, we made Deadspin.
A few more tasty morsels (from PS Bryan):

Well done, everyone.
The brains behind the ASU social media account was a bit out of the loop, though.
