The Packers are stepping it up into this technological age, joining both Twitter (@packers) and Facebook. Both of these help push the Packers into a new age where many other sports teams have information on both of these social networking sites.
While it is nice to show that you’re a fan of the Packers or to get Packers updates whenever they become available, it seems to me that neither of these tools will provide any new insight into the inner workings of the Packers. As of right now, both sites are basically newsfeeds for new stories going up on Packers.com. Don’t get me wrong, the stories they post are great looks into the lives of the players and their goals, but for groundbreaking news, I’d recommend using Journal-Sentinel columnist Greg A. Bedard‘s Twitter account (@Greg_A_Bedard) as your main source for breaking Packers news. And of course, Lombardi Ave is on Twitter as well (@LombardiAve).
However, it is nice to see the Packers, one of the oldest franchises in the NFL, getting up to date technologically and joining the social networking boom.
