We joke around in the comment threads often: "I know its true because I heard it on Twitter." While Twitter can be a source of misinformation, it can also be a great source of information when used properly. Want real time practice updates? Twitter is the place to be. Recruiting tidbits without forking out money for a subscription? Twitter. Everything that hits the news usually shows up on Twitter first. This list is not comprehensive, so please share the people you like to follow. For those of you who haven't found your way over to Twitter yet, here is your guide to following the Ducks:
