Twitter Ruling College Sport

03Dec12

College sports continue to show their growth in social media. Head coaches of many university teams have started to use it as a recruiting tool, keep up with the news cycle, interact with fans, and even have their own personality on it. According to a recent survey, at least half of all college coaches are on Twitter.  Earlier in the semester, I wrote about the Quack Cafe and how that will revolutionize social media.

Fieldhouse Media has been giving educational classes on Twitter for head coaches to get them better informed. The company has been offering social media education for athletes for years.

While most schools are on board, a few are lagging behind by not letting their student athlete’s or coaches use the forum. Many coaches believe this will put those schools at a huge disadvantage as kids continue to grow strictly in the social media age. I think schools need to get on board and stop living in 2001.
