15,193 followers as of 9:16am for Barry Zito. The last tweet that Barry Zito had was "Another 1 run loss. We must prevail!". By now we've all heard about the Brian Wilson hijacking a bus to go to downtown Arizona story. What is twitter?
ESPN has one, KNBR has one, shoot, Ashton Kutcher has more than half a million followers.
We almost never hear athletes from their thoughts in their mind. Twitter to me is a quick thought. Just like a short version of a blog. Write anything you want!
As an outlet, Barry Zito's tweet connects to the Giants 100%. The Giants were swept in San Diego on three 1 run ball games. Then to Seattle, when Big Unit pitched, and lost it in the extras, by one run.
No matter how old you are, don't be afraid of joining facebook or twitter. You will feel closer to the athlete, and the sport that you love.
