Twitter is all the rage with Schwartz and locked-out Lions
Defensive end Cliff Avril on his offseason during the lockout so far: “This is what I do, I work out twice a day. If I’m not working out or on Twitter, I’m taking a nap.’’
Avril is one of the Lions who could be called some type of Twitter-holic. He has plenty to say and tweets quite often.
But he’s not the ony one. Twitter is all the rage with the Lions.
Matthew Stafford started his account a few months ago. He kept everyone updated on the progress of his shoulder rehab. Now he’s cheering on his hometown Dallas Mavs. Thursday he tweeted a pic that words would do no justice.
Ndamukong Suh is a regular in the Twitter-verse. On Tuesday he tweeted that he was in London, England.
Rookie Titus Young has received much love from the Detroit fans through his Twitter account.
Coach Jim Schwartz started a contest on Twitter on Thursday to name the newly revamped D-line. Tweet him a suggestion and be in the running to win an autographed football.
If you’re a Lions’ fan and you’re not on Twitter, what are you waiting for? It’s free and it’s another avenue to stay in touch with the Lions.
