Web Exclusive: Monopoly is torn, People's Choice Award's First and Dallas Mavs

(CBS/CNN) - Monopoly tokens are in the fight of their lives! Hasbro is replacing one of the tokens with a new one.

The game board maker has turned to Facebook to decide which of the classic game pieces gets the boot. People can vote on which token they would like to see spared, the shoe, top hat, wheelbarrow, iron, battleship, race car, thimble and Scottie dog. There's also a vote on deciding the replacement, a diamond ring, guitar, toy robot, cat or helicopter.

This isn't the first time Hasbro has kicked some tokens to the curb. Among those retired pieces, a lantern, a cannon and a rocking horse.

Tweets don't come cheap these days. The former owner of the NBA's Dallas Mavericks, Mark Cuban, is fired off what's being called one of the most-expensive tweets ever.

He tweeted that he "failed miserably" in his attempts to "fix officiating" in the pro basketball league. That tweet came with a 50,000 price tag because the NBA has a  policy against publicly criticizing referees.

Cuban has paid millions of dollars in fines over the past 13 years for crying foul on NBA refs. According to the Mavs' website, Cuban matches every NBA fine with a personal donation to charity.
