Sorry to make a thread, but I don't have Twitter, and don't plan to get it, but I do check people's Twitter updates for Broncos updates. Can you ask a specific question to people? If so, can someone ask Adam Schefter what is the latest on the Brandon Marshall situation? Do they choose whether or not to accept your question?

thanks for the help, hopefully he can shed some light on the situation.

Nope. There's no choice in the matter. If they don't accept it, they die instantly.

they see the question, they dont have to answer it, schefter prolly gets hundreds of questions and cant answer em all.

you should get twitter, most stories are broken on twitter before any website gets a post up about them.

I check his twitter often, I just have no way to post or ask questions since I don't have an account. Hoping that someone that does, asks him the question about Bmarsh and he answers.

I have a twitter account but I don't tweet anything about myself. I only use it to ask the NFL people questions. It is a lot more convenient having everyone's tweets show up on one page rather than keeping a million bookmarks.

So, you want to use Twitter but don't want an account? Why not just get a Twitter so you can follow sports personnel for Broncos info. You don't have to tweet anything. I doubt anybody cares what you are doing anyway. ;DSounds like you're in denial about being a Twitter fan.

I didn't know it worked that way? So I can "follow" schefter and then he will come up on my page when he Tweets something? Either way, someone ask him the question yeT?

That is correct. Also, some people have their tweets protected, so you can only see them if they accept your request. I guess that is one reason to get an account.

yea, so right now im following 50 people nearly all of whom are NFL or specifically broncos related. when something happens, it gets posted on twitter, then it gets reported. especially awesome DURING broncos games because a lot of those reporters are at the games and can see the little stuff happening like on sidelines or whatever and post about it that we wouldnt know about otherwise

Yep. All of the tweets from people you are following show up on your Twitter home page.

Schefter has never answered one of my tweets. The only mainstream media people that do is the Denver Post, Frank Schaub, and Jim Trotter. Trotter is awesome he answers everyone's tweets.

I always got the feeling that Schefter was full of himself, who cares about what his reviews on a taco from chipotle?

I have found that a lot of the LOCAL media guys will respond if you are nice, have a good point/question, and don't bug them alot.
