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).
Texas Tech Red Raiders head coach Mike Leach has always been unpredictable. He is likely to do the unexpected, whether with his play calling or his interviews. But this year's antics seem to have had a larger impact, and not a positive one.
Have Texas Tech players lost faith in their coach?
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.
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.
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.
There is a growing outcry against Guy Kawasaki's, um, aggressive techniques on Twitter. In a number of recent keynote addresses, Kawasaki has described how he uses Twitter as an advertising channel for his ventures. There is also much concern over his use of ghost twitterers.
Most of the talk on the blogosphere today was on whether Google would purchase Twitter. There was relatively discussion of whether Google should purchase Twitter.
To gauge the feelings of bloggers, I surveyed countless postings about the proposed merger. I found them with a Google Blog Search for [google twitter]. Over fifty bloggers took an editorial position on the rumor.
