We're living in a world where news is no longer broken the old-fashioned way. Gone are the days where you would point your browser to CNN and ESPN for the latest updates on developing stories.
Now, the best way to stay current is by following the right people on Twitter.
With stars providing real-time status updates and responding to questions from fans, everyone now has access that was once exclusive to reporters.
Wondering how your favorite player's contract negotiations are going?
Refusing to be kept out of the fun, the New York Jets have decided to (hypothetically) join the latest Web 2.0 craze.
They are sharing their (hypothetical) thoughts and connecting with fans like no other team has (hypothetically) done before: 140 characters at a time.
Here are some excerpts from the New York Jets' Twitter page:
RT @kerryrhodes #PatriotsSuck and #FavreSucks. Jets in 2010!

@theMangenius We only trade for @Braylon17 with conditionals. More drops than 2008 & you owe US draft picks
