Twitter With The Rockets
(Note: This post is by our Rockets writer Ben DuBose. We're efforting, as they say in TV/radio, to fix the byline glitch.)
Last Thursday, I told a friend I didn't understand the Twitter obsession and what it offered that, say, a traditional Facebook status did not. Less than 24 hours later, I relented and joined the masses.
So, for the Twitterers out there reading, here's another real-time Rockets feed from your resident Rockets' beat guy: http://www.twitter.com/BenDuBose.
Yes, I know there are other Rockets' pages, but we have our advantages. Last week, for example, we were the first outlet to break the news from the Rockets' locker room that Carl Landry would be returning to action that night.
I won't clutter your page with excessive messaging, and of course, you'll still have your full recap at houstonpress.com the morning after the game (including tomorrow).
But for breaking Rockets news as it happens, consider this the initial source, beginning tonight against New Orleans.
Game time is at 7:30 as the Rockets will try to stay in the driver's seat for a Southwest Division title and home court in the first round of the playoffs.
