When it comes to college recruiting, Twitter is the preferred platform for both coaches and student-athletes. Over 95 percent of student-athletes surveyed say they have a Twitter account, and nearly all coaches are actively using the platform to communicate with recruits and promote team content. The platform allows users to boost their online presence and make fast, direct connections. How to use Twitter to get recruited varies based on sport. Twitter is widely used for all sports but is most popular in football, baseball, and men’s and women’s basketball.
