Just another reminder that The Sports Blog is on Twitter, and we’d love for you to join us—or, as people on Twitter say, follow us at Twitter.com/ChronicleSports. Don’t know what Twitter is? It’s a microblogging service (whatever that means!) in which users can post updates of 140 characters. Something like:
That’s 140 characters, and hopefully, you got through it. So, now, follow the instructions! Our Twitter feed is automatically updated with blog updates and Chronicle stories when they’re posted, and starting now, we’ll start posting directly, and more frequently. Something like:
“Just recorded predictions for this weekend. Iles: 28-17 GT. Cohen: 31-21 GT. Video soon on the blog, but what do you think?”
See? You would have gotten that information hours later if you weren’t on Twitter. So what are you waiting for? Sign up, and become a part of the journalism of the future—whatever that means.
