Tracy Porter makes the "Twindex''
By Pat Yasinskas
Atlanta’s Roddy White and New Orleans’ Reggie Bush made some headlines with their work on Twitter earlier this offseason.
But they’ve kind of gone quiet as of late. AFC South colleague Paul Kuharsky has a new feature he’s calling the “Twindex," which is short for Twitter Index and Paul’s monitoring the Twitter accounts of several hundred NFL players. His top-10 list is going to appear periodically through the rest of the offseason and weekly when the season arrives.
It’s a subjective list, based not so much on how often a guy tweets, but more on the quality (or interest value) of his recent tweets.
Take a look at Paul’s debut list. It has one NFC South representative. That’s New Orleans cornerback Tracy Porter talking about people wondering if he’ll give up his jersey number (22) to rookie running back Mark Ingram. New Orleans fullback Heath Evans got an honorable mention.
