Pittsburgh Steelers coach Mike Tomlin has embraced social media.
Specifically, he has joined the Twitterverse.
Tomlin is the fifth NFL coach to create a Twitter account. His address is @CoachTomlin
His first Tweet: "Hello Twitter. Expect no BS from me. Just straight fire!”
He already has more than 60,000 followers.
Tomlin has also posted a photo of himself along with Steelers owner Dan Rooney.
“This should be exciting, me delving into the social media world,” Tomlin told Pittsburgh reporters. "We spend time talking to our guys about what to do and what not to do, and I thought it would be appropriate and timely to show them. We'll see if I can do it in a professional manner. My kids are getting to the point in their life where I need to educate myself about it largely, so I'm killing a couple of birds with the same stone. So follow me!”
