Athletic Twitter Tips

Would like to thank Connor Nolte for his tweet to his fellow student athletes yesterday urging them to read this post by Tom Satkowiak, who is in media relations for UT Athletics.

Some of the tips are pretty direct, such as not using your avatar and attached pictures of soft-core pornography. Others are broader strokes designed to help student athletes promote "their brand".

Again, it's not a matter of if but when Twitter becomes an official train wreck in and around Butts-Mehre. For the most part I think our student-athletes do a decent job of representing themselves first and the school second. But Satkowiak's list could help a lot of the marginals to clean up their act before it does more than tarnish their brand.
