Tweet Like A Champion Today

Social media sites, such as Twitter, really do make the world a much smaller and more intimate place. This is highly beneficial for Notre Dame Football fans that truly stretch from coast to coast and even country to country. Fans are able to communicate with one another and follow accounts of players, coaches, athletic department employees, and bloggers that offer varying and unique points of view on everything Notre Dame Football. With so many Notre Dame affiliated accounts, it’s easy for some to slip under the radar. The following is a compilation of Twitter accounts that every true Fighting Irish fan needs to follow.

Players

TJ Jones: Junior wide receiver #7 TJ Jones doesn’t just step it up on the field, he is quite the tweeter. He knows exactly how to craft 140 character tweets that inspire and motivate.
