#11 Egregiously Omitted Summer Story: BU AD Mike Lynch joins twitter
Big news from the world of social media, as BU's reclusive chieftain of sport Mike Lynch has joined the ranks of such luminaries as @KourtneyKardash, @charliesheen, and @shitmydadsays.
I'm impressed to note that the tweets appear to be authentic and written by Mr. Lynch himself -- however, the page lacks the "Verified Account" badge as yet so I'll reserve final judgment on that.
You can follow him here: http://twitter.com/#!/BU_AD_MLynch
While the AD's tweets so far have mainly trumpeted the achievements of the various BU athletic teams (and there's certainly nothing wrong with that!), I'm hoping his account will consist of more than PR pablum and we get to see an insiders view of the department and its day-to-day vision and strategy. This is something the fans desperately want. We need more than the date and time of the next basketball game... we need our leaders' true feelings on the outcome, what he ate at the game, what he thought of a clever fan chant, or whether the refs screwed us. I'd also love to know if the AD at Boston College has been a dick about scheduling a basketball game at The Greek, or if the AD feels the same way about Northeastern as the rest of us do.
One disappointment so far: As of this writing, nothing from Mr. Lynch as to the failure of BU to be swept up in the conference realignment madness. Looking forward to his thoughts about how the trickle down could aid BU's rise to collegiate athletic dominance.
