Kenny Williams on Twitter

Filed under: Chicago White Sox — The Wizard @ December 9, 2009 3:09 pm


For general managers, Twitter has become a danger word. When White Sox general manager Ken Williams was told that Mark Teahen hinted at his new three-year contract extension before it was announced, Williams said, “You’re kidding, right?”

… So now team executives have to keep track of their players while also tracking stories on rumors on the site. White Sox vice president of communications Scott Reifert has been active in using Twitter for well over a year, an evolution of his team blog, and he occasionally uses it to break news.

“I don’t much pay attention to [Twitter],” Williams said. “[Assistant GM] Rick Hahn actually just gave me a quick education on Twitter, and after the education, I decided I won’t partake. It’s just one more thing to check.”
