Why You Should be Twittering

It’s inevitable.  It does not matter how hard we resist.  Sooner or later, we will ALL be on Twitter and Facebook.  These social networking tools keep us up to date and relevant.  Without them you are a step behind.  Those of us on Twitter and Facebook are updated immediately as things happen.  Meanwhile, those who abstain from social networks have to actually pursue the news.

The beauty of these social networking sites is that the latest news actively pursues us.  I used to habitually visit my favorite websites to check for updates.  Now, I can have the latest news sent to me.  For example, my phone will vibrate every time something significant happens with the Packers.  I can also have my favorite columns or blogs update me via Twitter or Facebook.  It’s that easy.

Still, you resist.  You refuse to get caught up in this silly fad.  You like things the way they are.  You finally upgraded from your dial up internet connection and you have email.  Your children taught you to text and you have mastered Google and Youtube.  “Isn’t that enough?” you ask.  No, it is not.

The top 5 reasons you should join Twitter:

5. Despite what Bob Uecker thinks, Twitter is not a cartoon bird or a condition to be medicated.  The greatest announcer in baseball has spouted some hilarious one liners relating to the social networking site.
“Twitter while you drive your car, buddy, and you’re in trouble.”
“I’m not twittering yet.  My medication takes care of that.”

4. You can follow movie stars, musicians, athletes, and reporters from all over the world including some of my favorites: @WilliamShatner, @Taylorswift13, the biggest draft bust in NFL history, @Tony_Mandarich, @RyanGrant25, and “The Gravedigger” @GilbertBrown.

3. Drew Rosenhaus gives us even more reasons to hate him every day.  His updates @RosenhausSports explain how this superagent intends to add to bloated egos and inflated salaries all over the league.

2.  Packersgab is on Twitter and Facebook.  Let us update you.

1. Nick Barnett.  This guy let’s us all in on his most intimate secrets on Twitter.  He hates the new T.O. reality show.  He once shared a video of his son working out with him.  He watches True Blood on HBO and Army Wives as well.  He let’s us know when he takes a nap, what he ate for breakfast, and best of all, he compares himself to Chuck Norris.  Look out 2009!  When the boogey man goes to bed, he checks his closet for Nick Barnett.
