Creating a Sportsjournalists.com Twitter list

    Hey everyone,

    I've recently uncovered the awesomeness of lists on Twitter. I've been using lists a lot lately and the next list I have planned is one for the Tweeters of SportsJournalists.com. The benefits of Twitter lists are pretty cool. You can organize groups of friends, or colleagues (like SportsJournalists.commers) and you can also use the list location to reply to all members and start conversations.

    Say an SportsJournalists.commer wants to talk about Brad Renfro, they can talk to all participating SportsJournalists.commers by replying to the list in a tweet.

    So if anyone wants to participate in this list and get the party started they can post their handle here (or PM it to me). However, unless your name is hidden people could find out your true identity. Me, I don't care so much. I'm not a sportswriter anymore, and well, I already have my handle listed in my sig.

    So again, if your interested in participating in my SportsJournalists.com Twitter list, reply here, or PM me, or add me on Twitter and DM me. It should be a great outlet to chat about sports, and of course, Brad Renfo.

    OH and Btw, I won't add anymore that doesn't ask to be put on the list. I don't want to out anybody. Just interested in starting some conversations.

    I'll start adding folks as soon as they let me know. And as soon as we get some more people the conversation will be going on Twitter @gunnsh0w/sjdotcom

    (P.S. Twitter can be finicky sometimes so it may take up to 24 hours or so for someone to be sucesfully added).

    Cool. Everyone who sent the name in the last few days, or PM'd it to me... I will add them tomorrow morning.

    And CMLifer... FIRE UP CHIPS! That was the first paper I was published in. Men's club rugby preview story.

    The Sjdotcom twitter list located @gunnsh0w/sjdotcom is now up to 10 members.

    If you subscribe to the list, or just view it, you can read what the SportsJournalists.com members are saying and also get links to new SportsJournalists.com threads. Check it out.
