A rumor about Les Miles that started on an Alabama messageboard quickly spread to Twitter over the weekend. But it took a few days before the LSU coach even heard about it. He was unfazed. Miles told AJC.com, “Yes, I don’t pay much attention to those kinds of things. “It’s just one of those things, I guess.”
Miles, who counts more than 100,000 Twitter followers, does occasionally find time for new technology.
“I’m an inconsistent tweeter, in general. For instance, the Super Bowl and the Miami Heat game, those were two events where I had nothing to do but watch. Know what I mean? The time before that was the College World Series when South Carolina was playing Arizona, and I tweeted a couple of innings from one of those games.
“What I do when I do it, this Twitter thing, it’s a self-entertaining piece for me. I certainly enjoy the acknowledgements, letting people know spring ball is getting start and that Johnny Jones is doing a great job in basketball. Those kinds of tweets are the real information but the fun stuff for me is pretending to call a game a live. I think Twitter for that is a little self-entertaining.”
Miles was asked about Twitter’s impact on recruiting.
“I got to be honest, I don’t know what role Twitter plays in recruiting. I really don’t. I can only tell you it’s entertaining, as long as it doesn’t get in the way of other things you’re doing. If you’re consumed by getting onto your electrical Social Media, it can be a problem.”
