Twitter: A great resource for coaches, but proceed with caution

Up front I’ve got to be brutally honest. I don’t tweet and I have read only a handful of them in my entire life.
Whether that’s good or bad, I have no idea. Much like I have no idea how the Twitter universe works, or how it actually began. Was it like the Big Bang Theory, only on a much smaller scale? And who the heck named it, Mr. Twitter?
Oh, I get the concept all right. What I don’t get is the constant need to know what others are saying, doing, thinking or even breathing. I’ve got my own life to live. I’ve got a dog at home that loves to play. I’ve got walls to paint, decks to stain, grandsons to play with and a yard that needs mowing seemingly every other day after I over-fertilized.
If I want breaking news I’ll turn on CNN or ESPN. Networks with capital letters I get.
