St. Louis Rams Encourage Players To Use Social Media, But To Do So Wisely

St. Louis Rams cornerback Trumaine Johnson is one of many team rookies on Twitter.

Following a fan favorite on Twitter or Facebook has become old news these days. Some teams and agents still harbor trepidation about their players and clients flocking the openness provided by social media outlets, but those channels are revolutionary in putting fans closer to the players and teams they follow. The St. Louis Rams encourage their players to use social media.

Rams director of player engagement La'Roi Glover talked to TST about the team's approach to players on social media.

"We encourage our guys to use social media," Glover said. "We don't feel that there's an issue with it. Just be smart about what you do."

Glover encourages players to follow a simple rule for social media usage, one that more fans should probably adopt themselves. "Think before you tweet.

"Think before you put it on Facebook. If you don't want your mom, your dad, or your grandmother to see it or read it, then don't put it out there."

Truer words were never spoken.
