Twitter is great for a lot of things these days: getting breaking news when it really is breaking, receiving live information from events or happenings that you're not invited to or can't be there for, a way to ensure that you only get small, 140 character doses of the people you couldn't possibly take 150 characters from, and of course, communicating with celebrities and sporting figures.
I was a skeptic at first ... it took my Niners Nation colleague Tre9er to finally get me onto Twitter, but now I can't get enough of it. I find the quick news to be invaluable, and the peek into the players' lives and personalities to be rather fun. I'll find myself tweeting with Anthony Dixon, Patrick Willis and Anthony Davis - and I'll receive replies. Through Twitter, I've found out Dixon's favorite food, Davis' taste in music, and have talked a good amount of trash to Willis about who is better in Madden (he is). But there's a right way to use Twitter and, in my opinion, a wrong way. Today's Tweet of the Day highlights the wrong way, so make the jump.
Some of these fans are funny to me/ I see no one care about the W alot of y'all talking about the things we did wrong/ forget that.
While it's true that fans should be concerned with all things related to how the team plays, especially the bad, why in the world would you take to Twitter and confront the players about it? To me, that's one way the network should never be used. Criticisms from fans are the last things players need, it's not going to help them, it's not something they don't already know, and it's definitely not the venue for such things. You should never be complacent, but I just can't see a point in going on Twitter and telling Chris Culliver that the 49ers stunk out loud on Sunday.
