So excited to join twitter. Now I just need to figure out how this thing works.— Barry Switzer (@Barry_Switzer) July 18, 2012
.@Barry_Switzer says Twitter account is authentic, even though "I fought (tweeting) for years." He's launching venture sportsmag.tv— George Schroeder (@GeorgeSchroeder) July 18, 2012
So, so, so many good things can come from this.
Known simply as "The King" amongst Sooner Nation, Barry Switzer joined (reluctantly) the Twitter universe today and OU fans (and, really, college football fans) everywhere rejoice!
As is often the case with notable Twitter accounts (for those of you unfamiliar with how Twitter works), there is always the risk of them being some type of parody account. However, as you can see in the second tweet Switzer has verified that it is indeed his actual account.
Good times ahead.
Thank you Twitter
