OneIfByLand comes to Twitter

You can follow this blog on Twitter at

(Oneifbylandsports was too long; oneifbyland was taken by someone who apparently is hanging out in Georgia or something.)


On a related note: It's now become a popular item of discussion that reporters at Gillette Stadium over the weekend were upset about the Patriots' Twitter feed. The issue, of course, was that the Patriots were announcing their picks over Twitter even before ESPN was announcing them -- thus, in the reporters' eyes, rendering them obsolete.


All Twitter did was announce the picks. If anything, Twitter rendered ESPN obsolete.

Twitter didn't give any analysis of the impact of the trade of Ellis Hobbs. Twitter didn't express any surprise that the Patriots passed on Clay Matthews, Rey Maualuga and James Laurinaitis. Twitter didn't have anything from the drafted players themselves.

Twitter passed along basic information. That's it.

It seems like there's still plenty of demand for analysis and context.
