FIND A STATION Dan Patrick Show

Deadspin and GQ columnist Drew Magary joined the show to talk about why athletes are on Twitter.

He said that there’s really no reason for athlets to be on Twitter. “Tom Brady isn’t on Twitter and his life doesn’t seem to be poorer for it,” Magary said.

But he said either business interests come into play, or they do it just for fun. Magary said that once they get into it, athletes want to win and it never ends well.

Magary said he wasn’t sure why Keith Olbermann was responding to Penn State students in the first place when he got in trouble for Tweeting that they were “pitiful.”
