ESPN gives Twitter a Twirl… | Steady Burn said on March 12th, 2009 at 10:42 am

[…] The Business of Sports threw up a post today championing the twitter usage of the Worldwide Leader. As much as I’d like to tear it down, and say they’re just using it as a megalo-rss feed, I can’t really do that (BLAST!) As BofS points out, ESPN is actually engaging it’s audience kindof on twitter. For example, Both the PTI and the Around The Horn twitter handles are inviting viewers to ask questions via the platform. For instance, @PTIshow put up a post yesterday asking viewers to suggest a guest for today’s show. Additionally, ESPN Regional Television created @Big12Network for fans to get updates on conference tournament happening – I badly wish The Big East was doing this. […]

You’ll know Twitter has really gone mainstream when they make a pop culture reference to it on SportsCenter

Thanks for posting this. I follow one person from ESPN but I think she is a hockey fan. It is great to see them engaging on Twitter. Maybe more sports personalities will join Twitter in the future.

I did convince a local personality from 97.1 The Ticket in Detroit to join Twitter but I do not think he has a grasp of it just yet. He is @bigscoop and that is Terry Foster.
