Yesterday, Herm Edwards joined Twitter.
The same man that in 2007 talked about his issues with the internet.
“Here’s the concern — in our society now, so many things come up on Web sites and Internet,” Edwards said. “First of all, I don’t even have the Internet. I wouldn’t even know how to use it. There are a lot of things that happen that people are subject to, and you never know where it comes from. For me to sit here and try to be Inspector Clouseau and figure out who did it. … I can’t do that. I’ve got to beat Chicago. I can’t worry about stuff like this.”
The video of NFL Live host Trey Wingo coaching Herm on just how Twitter works is up over at ESPN.
Amazingly, he has reached roughly 5,000 followers in a little over 24 hours.
Even more amazingly, Edwards seems to be the one actually posting to the account. When I saw the first tweet, there was no way in my mind it was a legitimate account. This was another comedy-sports Twitter account (Hello, LebronsElbow!), it just had to be.
If he gets the hang of Twitter we could be in for treats on a daily basis.
