UM Football Twitter Accounts

Submitted by SeafoodProf on August 3rd, 2010 at 12:04 PM

I signed up for a Twitter account a few weeks back for updates on my Blackberry. Are there any Twitter accounts that the avid Michigan Football fan should follow?

My current list:
varsityblue (mgoblog's Tim)

Sept. 4th can't get here soon enough!

follow QBForce (the Forcier family)


and michigan_fball of course. (mgoblue)


Then there's um_coachrod even though Coach Rod is probably (hopefully) too busy worrying about UConn than tweeting.


and while it's more bball, you can consider following umhoops (of blog); Dylan does some football tweeting from time to time, esp. during games.

BGraham54 -- Just to keep up with his news.

DrSaturday and EDSBS are essential

michigan_fball -- Rarely anything we haven't already seen, but some good links.

@MikeRothstein @Chengelis @FreepWolverines @MichDailySports are most of the beat reporters (on top of my own @varsityblue, of course).

@mgoblog obviously @mvictors @maizenbrew @ESPN_BigTen

Keep in mind when you follow Twitter accounts, you can add them to separate lists to better manage and organize. You could have a list for Current Players, Coaches, LOLMSM, Bloggers, NFL Players, etc. Then in an application like Hootsuite or Tweetdeck, each list can get its own dedicated column and notification options.

This is getting into power-user stuff, but Hootsuite additionally lets you group columns in tabs. So, you'd have accounts set up in lists, lists with their own column, and groups of columns in tabs. 

For example, I have Hootsuite set up with the following tabs and columns within each:

Business tab [I work at a movie theatre company]: Mentions of our name, new followers, scheduled updates, sent updates, movie news list, movie critics list.

Personal tab: Mentions of my name, list of local friends, list of college friends, list of funny people, list of web design news, list of stuff to read on my lunch break.

News tab: List of local news sources, list of breaking news sources, list of tech blogs

Sports tab: List of Michigan blogs/bloggers, list of athletes, list of sports news sources.
