The reasoning for my affection for Twitter is predominantly arcane. I swear, Twitter must have doses of nicotine in it, because now I’m addicted. It’s my place to desultorily babble to 560 others who couldn’t care less and stay up to date on the world–the sports world, more specifically.
This is where the Brewers come into play. Deftly put, they tweet, I read. I tweet, they don’t read. And, as of now, they tweet, I read, and I blog about reading their tweets.
“Tweeting with the Brew Crew” will be a regular segment on RtB, especially once the season begins and I finish the Season Outlook series. Each week or so, I’ll scour my list on Twitter containing solely Brewers players and post the ones I deem worthy in this segment. They might be funny, insightful, updates, inspiration, in Spanish (with loose translation done by yours truly), from prospects, current Brewers, coaches, or the always-comical parody accounts. I might even throw in some commentary. Who knows?
Let the Tweets commence.
