As Twitter fights go, a quick trading of barbs between the CEOs of two mobile communications companies sounds like an outright yawn on paper. However, full-time T-Mobile CEO and part-time shade-thrower John Legere would most certainly never succumb to a yawn — particularly in the face of a self-inflicted digital hug-it-out with Sprint CEOMarcelo Claure.

Of course, these makeshift brothers have most certainly encountered the raw power of their unmistakable bond before — with Legere generally leading the charge.
