Cooper Wittig's curator insight, May 14, 2015 8:41 PM

Never have you been able to follow your favorite athlete as well have you been with social media. Back in the day all you had to be able to follow your favorite athlete like you can now with twitter and Instagram. These sites allow athletes to communicate with fans and show a little behind the scenes action of their personal life and how they go about their everyday life.  I love being able to follow these athletes and sort of know what they are doing and a few different things they enjoy to do outside of the sports arena. For this little insight these athletes give us fans, they should not be banned from tweeting or other social media sites.  In this article the journalist is talking about how someone believes that players should not be allowed to tweet. That would ruin the enjoyable experience these players give to the fans with the ability to interact with people we never thought we could ever just a few years ago before these sites began to become so popular and main stream.
