Article on athletes and twitter. Some athletes have gotten in trouble for voicing things over twitter. It seems as if more and more of them are getting in trouble like noted in the article J.R. Smith and Antonio Cromartie being fined. What do you think about it? Should athletes be able to give unfiltered feedback on things? Or do they need to have regulations and things to consider before posting their "tweets".
Curious to see what PSD thinks of all of this

I think the whole twitter thing is getting crazy. But thats the world we live in. As a fan I love it, I have Harris, Hester and Forte along with a lot of porn stars lol. But I think its a new type of media that will be embraced as time goes on, at this point its to new for everyone to get it.
Chad Johnson has said he wants to do it during games and here is my opinion on that. At first I was like no no, but it literally takes about 20 seconds to send a message. Yeah you want guys paying attention, but how many times do we see interviews during the game and before half time. When you think about it whats the difference?
I also think twitters going to completely change the draft, and they mentioned this on NFL network not going to take credit. But with the draft going 3 days now, you can bet agents will use it to there advantage. I also have Drew Rosenhaus on mine. If he tweets about one of his players talking to a team it really could change the draft a lot.
