The New England Patriots can be found on twitter under the handle @Patriots. The official handle tweets out little notes and significant events regarding the team, but it is obviously under tight public relations watch and ignores how fun the Patriots players are on twitter.
The Patriots have a team reporter who tweets as well. Her twitter handle is @JackieBrittain. She covers training camp a little bit more than the team’s official handle does.
Tight end Rob Gronkowski is the one to follow at the handle @RobGronkowski. His twitter is a PR free-environment. Gronk’s twitter gained celebrity last year after he sent some interesting pictures and tweets to Sports Illustrated model Kate Upton.
In addition to his entertaining tweets, Gronk does a lot of charity work and just a lot of nice guy stuff in general like visiting Boston bombing victims in the hospital. Gronk also tweets out some heartwarming stuff he’s doing to uplift the Boston community in wake of the recent tragedies.
The Patriots’ punter Zoltan Mesko is also on twitter @ZoltanMesko.
Mesko has jokes — and he tweets them. He also documents a lot of his “regular folk” problems on twitter as well. He’s definitely worth a follow.
Gronk and Mesko both shared this amazing picture of Joe Andruzzi helping this Boston Marathon runner.
The Patriots’ first selection of the 2013 draft, outside linebacker Jamie Collins is on Twitter @KingG_8_JamiE. Although, it doesn’t look like the rookie is a regular tweeter. Hopefully, his four-year contract with the Patriots will inspire him to get a better Twitter handle.
