Did you see the stat about Twitter use at the Olympics? There are more tweets per day about the 2012 games so far than there were during in entire 2008 games. People are finally getting Twitter--how it can serve as a great way to not only get breaking news, unique photos, videos, and fan chatter, but views from the players themselves.
The Panthers training camp obviously won’t attract the volume of tweets that the summer games will get. But there are enough players, media and fans at Camp Wofford who use Twitter to make it a great source for up-to-date camp news whether you are sweating it out near the fields in Spartanburg, or following from the four corners of the earth.
So who do should you follow? I put together a list of players and media that you can follow on Twitter to help round out the camp experience. Some are obviously better than others, and there are a few players who still don’t use Twitter (for example: Cam Newton, Steve Smith and DeAngelo Williams). Those on the lists, however, will give you a different perspective of camp, and perhaps more importantly, who's doing well on the field, and who's not.
Players to Follow
If you already use Twitter, then the simplest way to follow Panther players is to follow them on the homepage of Cat Scratch Reader. You’ll find the Panthers’ Chatter on the far right side of the website. If you want to add the Panther players who use Twitter to your own Twitter account, then subscribe to our Cat Scratch Reader Panthers Players Twitter feed here.
Media to Follow
If you want Panther news on Twitter, then we also have a list of media who follow the Panthers closely, including Cat Scratch Reader editors, local beat writers, columnists, and radio/TV hosts. You can subscribe to Cat Scratch Reader Panthers News Twitter feed here.
This is probably not a complete list, so if you have suggestions for other players or media to follow, send us a tweet. For now, follow these Twitter users, maximize the camp experience, wipe your brow before you hunch over your smart phone, and as always: Keep Pounding.
