I've never used Twitter before but some of these look great. I pretty much rely on Rotoworld for my short player blurbs.

Thanks for the post. ;-D I'll have to check them out.

Blasphemy! :-D I would expect more appreciation for "over the topness", especially from a cafe writer.

Thanks for the links FNK, haven't followed twitter much in the past.

totally forgot the rotoworld twitter.
http://twitter.com/rotoworld_bb
forgot this one too from razzball
http://twitter.com/razzball
theres also fangraphs
http://twitter.com/fangraphs

i havnt checked really, but i imagine most if not all the fantasy baseball websites have a twitter.
if you want to go ever further, there are alot of actual players that have twitter. you could follow them and get first hand information. you can also send them them tweets and talk to them. im not following any specific players, but maybe some will actually reply back to you.

All they seem to do is link back to their own site. Why not just go straight to the source?

im probually one of the very few in my situation. twitter updates fast. if im on the twitter page and there is a new tweet, it says "# new tweets". i can then click it and the new tweet shows up right away. even with a twitter like @rotoworld_bb it gives the basic information within the 140 character limit, with a link to the rest of the information. in my situation, im still on a dial up internet access. therefore for me the rotoworld.com website takes alot longer to load.. so the twitter is easier/quicker for me.
ive noticed there is still plenty of updates at rotoworld.com that dont get updated on twitter, so i do still go to the site too.
