Twitter, the popular social networking service, has definitely caught on in the world of professional athletics. The Twins, however, have a relatively low presence on the site. What would happen if the club were to ramp up its "tweeting," you ask? Well, we think it would look a little like this:
- gogogomez hit ball good last nite but ran full speed into open locker door again OWOWOW :(
- mauerpower when I get home from a game, sometimes I cut loose, butter some bread and watch Jay Leno.
- MVP33 @mauerpower dude, Lenos been off the air for months LOL!
