Kansas State Football Coach Bill Snyder Joins Twitter

Hall of Fame college football coach Bill Snyder has joined the Twitterverse, proving its never too late to get started in social media. The longtime Kansas State leading man tweeted his first message on Monday morning, and is already closing in on 5,000 followers. 

The 76-year-old appears to have joined Twitter as part of a concerted effort for Wildcats coaches to be active on social media. Of the 12 Twitter accounts Snyder is following, 10 are K-State assistants. The other two are the university's athletics and football accounts. 

Coaches like Michigan's Jim Harbaugh have proven that social media can be a useful tool for bringing awareness to a college football program. Several of the Wildcat assistants are already putting this strategy into practice, tweeting their current whereabouts on the recruiting trail. 

It will be interesting to see how Snyder -- or whomever is ghost-tweeting for him -- utilizes his account moving forward. He in entering his 25th year at the helm for K-State, and now has yet another new responsibility on his plate.
