Patriots to 'Tweet' Draft picks

The New England Patriots will use Twitter to announce their 2009 draft picks in real time. Each of the Patriots' picks during the NFL Draft this weekend will be announced at Twitter.com/realpatriots, the official Twitter feed of the New England Patriots.

FOXBOROUGH, Mass. - The New England Patriots will use Twitter to announce their 2009 draft picks in real time. Each of the Patriots' picks during the NFL Draft this weekend will be announced at Twitter.com/realpatriots, the official Twitter feed of the New England Patriots.

Following the draft, the "RealPatriots" Twitter feed will be used to distribute official Patriots information, including player transactions, player appearances and other official announcements from the team's public relations staff.

"We might even get a few draft picks out via Twitter before they are announced on TV, so any Patriots fans following the draft closely are encouraged to begin following RealPatriots on Twitter," said Patriots Vice President of Media Relations Stacey James. "Of course this is the first time we are attempting this, so it should be interesting."

Patriots.com, the team's official website, also has a Twitter feed available at Twitter.com/patriotsdotcom, where fans can get additional analysis and updates from the Patriots Football Weekly staff along with links to updated content.
