    I've seen this movie before. A warning to potential applicants: Your compensation could be pennies/hour.

    Would be easier to take you seriously if you could upload an image correctly.

    Actually, no, it wouldn't.

    Hey Zooped,

    Maybe you should register those Twitter handles! Because I just checked and you don't have them! Don't worry. Since you played so nice earlier I decided to be a sport and register them for you. So when the time comes and you want the handles let me know. I'll charge you $50 per handle I've created. You can reach me on Twitter @roto_giants

    Here's the list of twitter pages http://www.rotoinfo.com/rss.php

    As you can see they are all there with followers and linked back to their proper team page url

    Good for you... 84 followers on that Giants page should really be vital for your NL West writer to achieve "maximum visibility"

    Exactly the twitter page is only 3 weeks old and baseball season didn't even start yet..

    It's just one of the features we provide for our team pages.

    Thanks for continuously visiting the site Mustang we appreciate all the feedback.

    Definitely not worth the amount of work they want you to put in.

    And an even bigger joke, they want a contract for this.
