    It's cool when they are at home and stuff. But please don't do it during practice or games. It's just a big distraction.

    The whole world would be more productive and better off if Twitter never existed.

    It has it's positive uses, but twittering from players during games or practices is not one of them.

    what the hell is it? You know you're getting old when you fall behind in understanding what all the technology toys are.

    i'm not a tweeter, but I can see its purpose, but during a game and practice you need your focuse on the game. if not don't bother showing up

    Twitter is the doom of all who use it. What a self important form of communication. The ego is what twitter is all about. I don’t care what folks think on a casual basis…present a well thought out argument and you will get my attention…twitter dose not provide that forum. Speaking in public off the top of your head is just asking for trouble! Twitter will be the fall of many public figures in the future.

    You got it! Twitter is like walking around with your fly open. Ninety nine percent of the folks that notice will not be impressed with your package and will ridicule you for being so careless and insignificant; your junk just ain’t that special!

    I hate Twitter because it is nearly ruining NFL Total Access. That tool Rich Eisen just can't shut the :censored: up about it, and now he has infected several of the others.

    Shut the hell up already and just tell me about football!

    Mainly for getting breaking news. It pretty much shows up there first, right from the source before the media announces it.

    And besides all the other reasons Twitter is annoying, could they have come up with a more lame name for it? Twittering, tweeting. ******* please.

    I just hope that the players don't pay attention to it during games and practices.

    Guilty!

    But being a crotchety old man doesn't necessarily mean you aren't right.

    Twittering should require that you wear a skirt.

    Sorry, ladies. :lol:

    I get the twitter hate, I really do. What Shammy and I have come to call in our crude manner Twitterbating is not for everyone.

    But it is a useful tool.

    I personally send out twitter messages with links to threads here. After I do that I can see a pickup in guest trafic to that very thread. I have used it to draw peoples attention to articles on the front page.

    I have asked players questions for articles on Twitter and gotten responces. That is something I could not do via e-mail or phone.

    It is not all ego driven nonsense, there is a use for it. But there is a lot of MISUSE of it, that gives it the reputation it has.

    I will use it to help promote this site and one other I visit. That is the positive manner in which I use it. As long as the players are willing to answer my questions I will continue to use it as the ONLY tool I have to have a one on one conversation with them.

    If you still choose to Twitterhate, that is cool, but I will continue to Twitterbate...

    It doesn't matter what they twitter about during camp, the true result of their training will be spoken on the field of battle.
