Pittsburgh is a social-media loving town. Our PodCamp kicks ass, there are regular gatherings of parent bloggers, and I’m not sure any city leverages social media for doing good quite like Pittsburgh. We also have some pretty good sports teams (and the Pirates), so it’s only natural that these two worlds should collide.
Sure, there are Pittsburgh athletes tweeting, and the Steelers lead the way with at least twelve current players with accounts, but we now have Troy Polamalu’s hair and Brett Keisel’s beard tweeting. I’m not sure this can be called “taking it to the next level” but that’s what I’m going with.
HarrisonsHits isn’t a body part. I’m not really sure what it is. Let’s go with grammatically-challenged.
NotSteelyMcBeam is not the Steeler’s mascot. Since no one really likes Steely McBeam and his Cowher-esque chin, we like NotSteely better.
And finally, let’s not forget FakeTomlin who doesn’t tweet a lot but is hysterical when he does.
All this is just begging for a Twitter list. What fakes, body parts, or other sports craziness are you seeing on Twitter?
ClumberKim loves her Pittsburgh sports teams. She tolerates the Pirates for the sake of her five year old Yinzer son.
