What do coaches, players, recruits, schools, teams, and clubs have in common?
They all have Twitter!!!
Ok maybe not everyone has a twitter... but it is a lot better chance that someone has twitter installed on their phone with notifications enabled than them sitting in front of a computer with a recruiting software open.
