Follow Them: Green Bay Packers on Twitter

With the NFL lockout in full swing and no apparent signs of a resolution, one way to stay in touch with your favorite Packers is Twitter. If you don’t know what Twitter is, I don’t know what to tell you or where you have been the last two years, but here’s a rundown of players using the social media website as well as informative reporters for all things Packers.

Aaron Rodgers: @AaronRodgers12 — Rodgers only tweets in the offseason, so you’ll only get to hear from him until the season begins. He rarely talks about the Packers but is funny and discusses other sports. He loves quoting movies and will tweet back people who mention him.

Clay Matthews: @ClayMatthews52 — Maybe the best tweeters on the team, Matthews doesn’t hold back and loves to tweet about whatever is going on in the world. No surprise, he loves to tweet about his hair, but he tweets Erin Andrews on occasion and will tweet back fans.

Nick Barnett: @NickBarnett — One of the veteran Tweeters, Barnett is passionate about what he tweets and loves cracking jokes. He will talk football and give updates on his workouts, and he loves to go back and forth with teammates.

Tom Crabtree: @TCrabtree83 — He doesn’t post huge numbers, but his Twitter game is Pro Bowl worthy. He loves tweeting about his favorite movies and TV shows, and is a big gamer. He tweets back at fans as well and is a good follow.

Tramon Williams: @HighRizer38 — Williams is brand new to Twitter, but he gets it. He recently did a Q+A with fans, always popular on Twitter, and will hopefully continue that through the offseason.
