tony-larussa-twitter-lawsuit.JPGSt. Louis Cardinals manager Tony La Russa and Twitter have reach a settlement against the micro-blogging site.

La Russa had sued the social-networking giant over a fake page that purported to be the lineup savant.

La Russa said Twitter has agreed to pay legal fees and make a donation to his Animal Rescue Foundation.
Tweets to the account had made light of La Russa's previous DUI charge and the deaths of Cardinals pitchers Daryl Kile and Josh Hancock.

Despite all the hubbub, the faux La Russa had collected just four followers.

Actually, Twitter is not settling. They consider Mr la Russa's lawsuit to be 'bordering on frivolous.'

Kyle responds: ........geez
