Where some people view Twitter with fear and loathing – I am looking in your direction, ESPN – others see the online social networking tool as a way to connect with peers and fans. The latest driver to share his thoughts on Twitter is Kevin Harvick, whose wife DeLana has developed her own loyal following this season. As their fans know, the Harvicks have taken their playful bickering and teasing to the Twitterverse, much to our great joy.
The Bleacher Report notes an interesting corollary. Since he started posting on his once-idle Twitter account July 21, Harvick’s fortunes have turned. He finished sixth at The Brickyard and 12th at the Pennsylvania 500. His Nationwide team is doing well and Ron Hornaday Jr. extended his Truck Series win streak to five.
On a side note, I do believe that Juan Pablo Montoya’s recent success has come during a period of increased Twitter activity. He posts often. Dale Earnhardt Jr., on the other hand, says he has no use for Twitter. He is 23rd in the point standings.
