The 64-year old has nearly 10,000 followers overnight after only posting two tweets. He now joins the likes of Justin Turner, Johan Santana and R.A. Dickey as Mets who are on twitter.
I personally think this is great. Now fans can directly contact Alderson and voice their opinion. Chances are he won’t respond to the majority of them, but being able to communicate with executives of your favorite team in general is a big plus. I wouldn’t expect him to tweet 15 times a day or something to that effect, but a comment here or there can be relied upon. It should be interesting to hear what he has to say throughout Spring Training and the 2012 season.
