Someone responded that I didn't understand the power and importance of Twitter. If you take Twitter away from them, you are going to lose recruits, I was told.
I'm starting to see what this guy was talking about. We have a new football coach who seems to be doing a great job. I think our recruiting class for '14 is currently ranked in the top five FWIW. A lot of credit is due Twitter. Athletes recruit other athletes by tweeting. Fans recruit athletes by sending tweets to athletes. Seems like that would be against NCAA rules, but this may be beyond their control. Plus, athletes of all ages love to tweet. I guess it feeds their egos.
I'm guessing that Twitter will surpass Facebook in popularity and importance, if it hasn't already.
