While the rest of the world (and that’s honestly not stretching the truth all that much) is enamored with the World Cup … two announcements have been made very quietly this week that will change the way we watch college football.

First, Twitter began supporting animated GIFs in its timeline. The process of posting them is as simple as adding a photo to a tweet.

Who Dun It??? The Tom Brady Knee Injury Saga

Seriously? And this comes from the last person on the planet without DVR). One journalist has had his twitter account suspended at the request of NBC. (Sensitive much?) People are complaining all over the place about not being able to see what they want, seeing too many spoilers, and seeing too many complaints about the complainers. Read more…

The Tweet Off Their Back

LPGA Tweets

This is one of those “Why didn’t I think of that?” moments.  The LPGA debuted a new addition to the caddy bibs at the Wegman’s LPGA Championship this week in Pittsford, NY:  twitter handles. Yes, that’s right, LPGA players with twitter accounts will have them advertised on the backs of their caddies. Read more…
