Badgers' Bielema users Twitter to follow players

Posted:

MADISON, Wis. (AP) -- Attention tweeting college football players!

Wisconsin's coaches may be following you.

Adding a twist to the craze that is Twitter, Wisconsin football coach Bret Bielema says he likes to use it to keep tabs on what opposing players are saying.

The popular social networking site allows people to post messages 140 characters at a time.

Bielema said at his weekly news conference Monday that he's probably not as good at Twitter as he should be. But he says he follows opposing players to "find out things that they may say or may do."

Bielema's Twitter feed had 1,799 followers as of Monday afternoon. Most of his recent posts haven't broken much news.
