    I just set up a Texans Talk Twitter and added a few posts to test it out. I will randomly be posting things and will be taking quotations from some of your posts and linking back to the forum.

    What's also cool is we are following quite a few legit Texans players on there (thanks Diehard Chris for the insight on that via your site).

    Here is the Texans Talk Twitter URL http://twitter.com/TexansTalk

    If any of you guys have an account feel free to become a follower.

    Dammit...I knew football would drag me kicking and screaming into the abyss known as Twitter.

    Sigh. Who's with me?

    The Texans are the sole reason I joined that darn thing lol.

    Most amusing Texans twitter pages belong to Slaton, Duane Brown, and Eric Winston

    This Twitter thing is pretty cool. Where else can one interact with the players like that. Duane Brown just responded to the Texans Talk Twitter about keeping Schaub clean this season. We will definitely need a healthy Schaub this season so we won't be expecting any sacks coming from the left side. ;)

    Probably a dumb question, but do you have to join to read the posts or can you just do it? I have an aversion to joining things and don't if I can avoid it.

    I don't think you have to join. Click this link http://twitter.com/TexansTalk and see if you can read the post.

    You can just read the posts if you want, but by becoming a member it organizes all the people you're following onto one page so you don't have to scramble around trying to remember who all you wanna see. Also some twitter pages are private and if you wanna follow you have to become a member.

    Sure you can. The sig is open to everyone to celebrate with Bud and his new victims ... errrr faithful fans I mean!

    On a trivia note, the sig commemorates every season the Oilers/Titans broke the hearts of their fans in the postseason. Can you match the year to the team that took them down and the final score of the game that ended Bud's dreams of a Lombardi Trophy?

    For example I will give you one ...

    1990 Cincinatti Bengals 41-14

    I am curious if anyone can do it without Googling the answers.

    I think you broke Twitter. I went over to follow you, and it's down LOL

    It could be the link from nfl.com. Or if Britney fell down, or Paula leaving Idol (sarcasm)

    Soon as it's back up, I'm following.

    The link will work fine, twitter is down completely, can't get to anything on Twitter right now.

    Give it some time, it will be back and the link will work!

    I just signed up on Monday. I get tweets directly on my G1. It's pretty good because as soon as something happens with the Texans now, I get the tweet on my cell.

    I'd rather just log on here and get updates from you guys than jump into the Twitter cesspool.
