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.
Can we talk about why you have Twitter open when you are watching the game on TV?
This seems like a valid question. Many people might like the @CF Twitter updates about events, breaking news, links, etc, but not want an update in their thread every 3 minutes of a game.
So good idea: Split into 2 twitter accts, "@cyclonefanatic" and "@cyclonefanatic-gamecast". The latter could be for those who want the updates, and the main @CF acct can reminder-tweet before each game and at half-time: "Follow @CF-gamecast for Live in-game updates!"
here's another, slightly different idea. Works best on smartphones..
1.) unfollow @cyclonefanatic
2.) create a list with @cyclonefanatic and any other accounts that potentiall annoy from time-to-time.
3.) only look at the list when you want info about subject matter of the list
I do this for baseball - all offseason, (when Buster Olney is tweeting about Vanderbilt football) i ignore the list. come march, i start looking at the list again. After my team loses in Sept or Oct... I ignore the list again.
