    I now have Twitter. I'm not actually using it, i'm just following random celebrities because they're normally good for a laugh.

    Anywho, since I don't feel like googling every Packer player to see if they have a Twitter, can you guys give me some names of Packers that do have an account?

    Also, if you have any other amusing Twitter accounts that you'd recommend, feel free to include those.

    clay mathews is on there, not sure if arods brother or arod is lukerodgers, just seems a little odd his brother would be talking to most of the team. seems like a smart way to hide who u are.

    Do not follow Peter King. He will just upset you.

    LOL! Thanks. I dunno why, but when I hit post, it wound up posting that same message three times.

    RE: Peter King, I don't find him all that upsetting. He can come off as a Favre ball-washer at times, but so does the rest of the media. Mostly I think he makes some good points.

    Awesome post, SpartaChris!

    BTW, if anyone want to follow anything Packers on twitter, go to Packers Lounge

    They have a box that posts every tweet about the Packers. It's awesome.

    Pro Football Talk is a good one to follow for complete, up to date NFL info. Thats usually how I find out who has become a FA first. I follow alot of NFL players because I like to see what they are up to but players like TO and OchoCinco actually reply to you. Im PackFan52 on twitter if people want to follow me and get some more players from my following list.

    If it's Florio posting, than it's more TMZ than NFL...

    True. But none the less, thats where I have found out about who has been released into FA... even before I get my ESPN NFL texts.

    Is that Rodgers one actually him? It reeks of someone faking it to me.

    If it's a fake, it's a damn good one. Pretty sure it's real as I got it from Clay Matthew's post.

    Wow, that sounded lame. =) "Well I heard it from so and so, so it *has* to be true!"

    That said, it doesn't appear to be fake to me, unless the user is just damn good.

    Hell no, at least not to his face. =)

    Nah, just saying I sounded kind of dumb saying, "Well, I heard it from this person, so it has to be true!"

    The real players will have been verified by twitter. You will see a verified image by their name.

    Check out Chad's twitter, you will see what I am talking about:
    Chad Ochocinco (OGOchoCinco) on Twitter

    Rodger's account was just created yesterday, so I doubt it's been verified yet.

    FWIW, I'm following the account and believe it to be him. There's been lots of interactions between the account and known Packers players and reporters, so take it for what you will.

    CM3's account doesn't have it, and it's real... Barnett has been talking with Rodgers, CM3 also, Finley...

    It's real, or he fooled everyone...

    Thats not definite, some players have a hard time trying to figure out how to get verified lol. I believe Steve Slaton or Darnell Dockett is having a hard time getting verified but all of their teamates (some with verified accounts) are still talking to them.

    I was skeptical about AROD's twitter at first but I saw hes been twitting back and forth with CM3 and other Packers so I believe its really him.

    I question the timing of it, but hey, always good to hear from Greg.
