  • Players on Twitter?

    If an account shows up on Twitter purporting to be a real player or commentator (such as David Cone, who has been talking about going on Twitter but I don't think he's done it yet*), how can we be sure it's really them? Should we just wait until they mention it on the air?

    * I did a Twitter search and there's at least three accounts called "David Cone" although I doubt any of them are real.

    For the real Yankees, just look at who the YES Network is following. https://twitter.com/YESNetwork/following
    Quite a few Yankees (and announcers), but David Cone is not one of them. So, the ones you are seeing are probably fake.

          Speaking of BB-Ref, I found this amusing on the main page...

          The Stumble to 500,000 Errors
          499,810 MLB errors since 1876.
          500,000th expected in 12 days.

            How can you tell if an account is verified?

              Several team websites have a list of their players' accounts. Here is the link for the Yankees:

              Just go down near the bottom of the team's homepage, where they have the "Connect With" banner, click on the Twitter logo, and then "View All Twitter Accounts."

                What is Twitter apart from an avenue for a bunch of people who post on celebrity accounts, thinking that those celebrities actually read those posts and give a hoot, or for bunch of celebrities who have so much time on their hands that that can spend all day tweeting rubbish and feeding those people!!
