    I would like to encourage everyone to create a league specific twitter for Madden as we can post game scores inside the game as well as talk about other things like brief Team Updates or Trade inquiries. If everyone could do this we could follow each other and get instant updates on things going on in the league kind of an Inside the 12th Man. We also have a league specific Twitter @12thManPS3 where some league updates will be announced and I just think its another great tool to interact with everyone as a league. With the approval of CHUNKNESS if we get enough people on board with this maybe he can add everyones twitter handle to the team profile section.

    Would look something like this:

    we WILL be making this a mandatory assignment for everyone, even if they don't use Twitter. Everyone will be setting up a twitter account and tweet their game result upon completion of the game. that way, those who follow will be able to view the tweets, and those who don't use Twitter will be fine, just missing out on the fun. divisional game recaps will still be mandatory in the forum, but guys can use their twitter feed as part of their recap...


    How do I embed a twitter feed into my post?

    Unsure about this, I get that you have the option to tweet your score after the game but to make it mandatory? May not be a big thing but i'm one that absolutely hates twitter and would rather not use it.

    I'm not a big fan of Twitter but it also only takes 2 seconds of your time to post the score and summary on it. Give it a chance take a look at it. ;)

    I dislike Twitter as well and will not use it, but Juan is right...

    i'll do it if it's mandatory but personally i don't see the use in it for me if that's all i'm gonna do is post my score to an account i'll never check nor will i check any others. Just my opinion

    Yeah, i know. But we can't force the guys to start a Twitter account if they don't want to. I know it is SO easy to do, but alas, it is what it is.

    All you old fuddy duddys need to get with the program! You guys hate those new fangled electronic cameras and the cellular telephony things too?

    Twitter is here and it's huge, embrace it or get left behind!

    (All said completely in jest ;) I hated Twitter too. Until I realize what a great resource it is for what's going on in the world, especially the sports world.)

    Thanks for not making it mandatory. I'd rather not do it because everyone else is or because I'm being forced to. I have FB which is enough social media for me and I'm down to do something with the league using that platform.

    I created a 12thManDolphins Facebook page as well. You can do that and invite anyone from the 12th Man Football group. Shoot me a friend request, James, and I'll add you.
