    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?

    Re: Can we talk about the CF twitter account?

    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!"

    Everybody wins!

    I'd say more people have their panties in a bunch over a mildly worded criticism.

    Re: Can we talk about the CF twitter account?

    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.
