If you like hearing sound bites of Pittsburgh Steelers head coach Mike Tomlin during his pregame/postgame interviews and press conferences, then you’ll probably love what he has to say now in the Twitter-sphere. Just at the start of the Steelers’ training camp at Saint Vincent College in Latrobe, PA, Tomlin started his very own Twitter account.
Since joining this avenue of social media, Tomlin has quickly gained close to 60,000 followers (including myself). The seventh-year head coach didn’t hesitate posting his first-ever tweet once training camp got underway on Friday.
Hello Twitter. Expect no BS from me. Just straight fire!

Just like this tweet, I expect nothing less than the straight up truth. Personally, I can’t wait to see how Tomlin expresses himself on Twitter. His always candid remarks about the performance of his team and possibly even his opinion about officials could cause a major tidal wave throughout cyberspace.
Tomlin is arguably the epitome of a no-nonsense type of coach in the NFL, and doesn’t shy away from expressing what’s exactly on his mind. Although Tomlin will more than likely refuse to pull any punches with his tweets, I will assume that he will be smart enough to not post anything that will be too extreme that will put himself in trouble with the league.
Regardless of what Tomlin puts out there, I’m sure that the remainder of training camp, the preseason, the regular season and hopefully the postseason will be filled with numerous thoughts from the Steelers’ head coach that will keep everyone in the football world on the edge of their seats.
