As much as I really don't care for social media I have found that it has provided me with a useful method of getting to know players.
If you looked at Tweets from Mike Wallace and Antonio Brown side-by-side you'd think they were from different planets at times. One is typically positive and enthusiastic while the other is difficult to read and can be downright negative.
I realize I'm a middle-aged white guy who doesn't 'get it,' but I feel pretty confident in being able to tell which of these two guys the Steelers would like to have long term.
Obviously on field abilities are just slightly more important than ability to Tweet but it doesnt take a rocket scientist to figure out who the front office is leaning to should both have similar seasons in 2012.
Food for thought I suppose.
