I thought it would be interesting to take a look at how some of our Atlanta Falcons have been spending the off-season. This column could become a regular fixture here on the Grits Blitz Blog or it could be a one-hit wonder. Chime in if you think it's a keeper or something that we should flush out of our system like a bad playoff loss.
Twitter is great for the sports fan for a number of reasons. First of all, it's the easiest way to stay in touch with "breaking" news in your sport (or field) or choice. You can also here it right from the source, whether that's following your favorite writer or player. You can also create lists and filter those by subjects. There is a myriad of ways you can use the twitter machine. The way I used them today was to peak in at the lives of our Falcons players and see some of the different way they were spending the off-season....
