The Importance of Twitter

What does Twitter have to do with the Oakland Raiders? Well, believe it or not, it has a lot to do with it. It's a great way to stay connected and get updates for all of your Raider needs. The best way to get Raider news is via Twitter by following the right people to get what you want and when you want it. The first source for everything in any sport is Twitter and that's no different for Oakland Raiders news. Twitter keeps you connected to everything Oakland Raiders as it happens. Hit the jump for some accounts for you to follow.

Vittorio Tafur of the San Francisco Chronicle is a great follow. Today, he was at Tom Cable's live press conference (for which there is still no story despite there being a live stream) and is giving us a rundown of what he said. Tafur is the lead writer for the Raiders for the Chronicle newspaper.

Henry Wofford of Comcast SportsNet Bay Area and California is one of many CSNBA and CSNCA reporters. This year, he's been informed that he's covering the Raiders. He does a great job on pregame and postgame shows and I'm looking forward to him covering the Raiders. He'll be with the team from Saturday to Monday.

Jerry McDonald is a veteran when it comes to covering the Raiders. He writes for the Bay Area News Group and constantly has updates for us in OTAs and in training camp. Today, he tweeted that discussions are ongoing between the team and first-round pick linebacker Rolando McClain.

Those are the three most important guys for me to follow for all of my Raider news and info. If you're interested in more, let me know in the comments and I'll help you out or perhaps someone else can. Again, today was Tom Cable's press conference and hit the link for Tafur's or Wofford's Twitter accounts and scroll down for what they broke down from the press conference. The only big thing was Cable announcing quarterback Jason Campbell as the starter, but it's not like that was a big shock or anything.
