Twitter and the Dallas Cup

Ahhh, These kids with their Twitter!

Soccer has a unique relationship with this new medium. Soccer has been low on the priority of sports coverage in the U.S. That's where Twitter has stepped in to help bridge the community of fans across this vast country with their athletes and writers. At your fingertips, you can send well wishes to Landon Donovan @landondonovan or see a conversation between fellow U.S. Mens National Team member @CharlieDavies9. Or, instant commentaries from SI soccer writer Grant Wahl @GrantWahl and ESPN writer, Dallasite Steve Davis @SteveDavis90.

With this the new generation of soccer player, they have adopted this medium and brought a new level of fan player connection. One of the most prolific club of twitters are the Arsenal Youth. It has become the norm to get up-to-date results form the lads. @ZakAnsah, @jd_rees; @Benik_Afobe, @jack_wilshere; @JeffreyMonakana, @EmmanuelF4 and @Henderson_91 to only name a few.

In and during the coming week of the Dallas Cup, it's worth to give twitter a try as maybe the best coverage of the Dallas Cup may come from players like @Hyorankd and @igooor_a from Corinthians, @davidbabunski from FC Barcelona Juvenil B and @moy10_92 from Tigres/U20 Men's National Team.
