Someone add her to the list of influential Jewish Twitter users. Dr. Ruth Westheimer, the 80-something sex therapist, uses the social media website to offer advice to her fans and followers, provide insight into her still-hectic schedule, and opine on current events. Her Twitter handle, @AskDrRuth, functions as a virtual help desk, with other users positing questions that she often answers.

She also gives unsolicited advice, like the suggestions she is dispensing today in reference to Jeremy Lin, the New York Knicks point guard currently taking the city—and the media—by storm:

@AskDrRuth: “For those missing out on Lin-sation because of TW-MSG no-deal, I propose you do your own scoring while Knicks are playing.”

@AskDrRuth: “What might a good Lin position be? Pick and roll, where you turn over while together so he starts out on top and you switch places.”

@AskDrRuth: “Just remember there’s no 24 second clock in your bedroom so I don’t want you guys stopping and popping too quickly now.”

You’ve gotta hand it to Dr. Ruth—she knows a lot about basketball.

Speaking on Linsanity, from sleeping on his brother’s couch, he has a nice pad in Houston. His elegant upholstered bedhead has a Rockets logo.
