Your Field Correspondent has been addicted to the Twitter/social media management tool HootSuite ever since he became a professional tweep. But recently, the author found a place where you can get the HootSuite experience for major sports leagues, teams, and athletes. The site (twittersportsnet.com) watches Twitter for hashtags such as #NBA (National Basketball Association) and #MLB (Major League Baseball) and compiles them into a fairly speedy stream of high-level content. It even monitors Twitter mentions of the rough-and-tumble, smack-tweet-filled world of the PGA (Professional Golfers' Association). In addition to looking for content about leagues, you can keep an eye on items tagged with the name of your favorite team.
