Yahoo’s Twitter Intelligence

Just noticed a new feature for all of those using Yahoo! Fantasy Football. If you go to the Research tab, you’ll see a new sub-tab called Twitter Intelligence. If you click that, you can see all tweets mentioning players on your team. You can then select which specific players to search for (Show tweets for:), whether it’s just your starting roster or even just your quarterbacks or something (note: I’m not sure this filtering functionality is working quite yet.)

This is a great tool to use on Sunday morning/afternoon, right before game time, so you can keep an eye on the health of your players and see if make sure they’re playing. Twitter is where you’ll hear most news first, so it’s great to have an fishbowl to look into and see updates for just your players (assuming everyone spells their names correctly!)
