    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.

    Re: Can we talk about the CF twitter account?

    Bump to note that the CF twitter account posted 60 tweets, in the first half alone, in a blowout, November, non-conference basketball game.

    That is, simply, way too many tweets.

    I guess I'll unfollow, which sucks, because I like getting all of the the non-play-by-play updates from the twitter feed. If I'm not watching the game, I can get play-by-play elsewhere, if I want it.

    Most that responded last time disagreed with my position, which is fine. Curious to see if that has changed, though.

    I unfollowed, just didn't think it was worth a thread. Follow chris, you get most of the good stuff, not as much livetweets.

    Actually, a lot of people couldn't get this game on tv and espn didn't do game cast since it was on cbs. So actually it was the best play by play out there. Wow some people really have nothing to complain about.

    Nope. Everyone still thinks it's just a you problem.

    Re: Can we talk about the CF twitter account?

    I told our intern Garrett to go heavy on the tweets last night because the game was on CBS Sports Network and I knew a lot of people were traveling for the holiday. This was done by design.
