A great piece ran in Sunday’s Journal News about student-athletes’ use of Twitter. Mike Dougherty and Phil Terrigno did a terrific job of highlighting the pros and cons of high school athletes being on Twitter. If you didn’t get a chance to read it check it out here.
Personally, I think Twitter is great. Sure, there are instances where kids tweet out stupid things. To be honest, if Twitter was around when I was in high school I’m not sure I would have always said the smartest things as a 16 year old. With that being said, I think the positives far outweigh the negatives. Twitter is great way to keep up with news, interact with one another, and spread information.
