    Can we talk about the CF twitter account?

    Is there any reason for the constant, timeline-clogging game updates? The game is on TV, for anyone who wants to watch it. And even if someone can't watch it, they can get updates in other ways. I just don't see the need for the constant updates, especially for niche sports.

    I'm curious to hear what others think.

    Re: Can we talk about the CF twitter account?

    Sorry, I love it. I'd rather get the descriptions from twitter instead of the basic live stats from gamecast.

    Remember, not everyone is watching the game on TV.

    You mean a website that covers ISU sports has a twitter account that is covering ISU sports? Mind. Blown.

    I think you can unfollow it if you don't like it.

    Ugh, stop using Twitter for it's intended purpose. Need more hashtags.

    So now the complaint is that CW does too much for free?

    Haha. Not in charge. I actually work my own college basketball games on Wednesdays and Saturdays, so I have twitter up all the time for those. That's why I love all the CF tweets.

    I never really paid much attention to it, but now that it is bothering someone, I kinda like it.

    Re: Can we talk about the CF twitter account?

    I like getting the tweets for columns, recruiting updates, etc. I've just never been a fan of women's basketball, and I'm clearly not alone on that, based on general fan interest. Would anyone be opposed to a separate twitter account for game updates?

    I understand that some people like the updates, but couldn't you get them from this or this just as easily? There's really no need for constant updates from the @cyclonefanatic feed.

    Ditch twitter, it's lame anyway.
