2010 Longhorn Football Players on Twitter

As the social network Twitter continues its growth, more and more current Longhorn players are joining. Below is a list of the 2010 Texas Longhorns I could find on Twitter. Let me know who I'm missing (or if any of these are fake).

ESPN and the College World Series

I've only watched two of the games of the College World Series so far this year (the two Texas Longhorn games, of course). The commentary by ESPN has been horrifically bad for both, however. First there was Sunday's game between Texas and Southern Mississippi, which featured an extended discussion of how unimportant Twitter is. This contrasted nicely with ESPN's promotion of its CWS Twitter feed every fifteen minutes or so.

American Idols on Twitter

Many of the American Idol contestants, both current and former, are popping up on Twitter. Unfortunately, I can't guarantee that these are all real. In fact, I can guarantee that some are fakes, as some have multiple accounts claiming to be that person. For now, I'm listing the multiples until I can determine the authoritative account.

Who’s Who in Social Media for the Texas Longhorns, Individuals

Is it football season yet? Nope. We're still in the doldrums of the off-season, but I wanted to write about my beloved Texas Longhorns. So, like any decent blogger would do, I came up with a related topic to fill the void. To that end, I'm combining the Texas Longhorns with another of my favorite topics, social media, to create the "Who's Who of Social Media for the Texas Longhorns". The list includes bloggers, sports writers, and even former players. Part Two will include profiles of some of the most prominent sites.
