Parcells's official Twitter handle is @parcellsbook. But did you really think Bill tweeted? Ha! You better check out our video segment in which he scoffs at the notion of signing up for Twitter or Faceboook. Regardless, Bill is aware of the numerous parody accounts. Indeed, Coach's presence reverberates on Twitter, where his maxims are posted daily, especially during the football season. Bill has trended multiple times, including: after the Hall of Fame snubbed him in early 2012; while Sean Payton tried to lure him back to the sidelined some months later; and when he finally reached football immortality in 2013. However, Bill is such an iconic figure that Twitter users -- the famous, almost-famous and everyone else -- invoke his name in a wide range of topics including business, music, religion, parenting and politics. So this "Bill Tweets!" page is dedicated to the clever, funny and revealing ones about Bill over the past several years. Maintaining the balanced approach of Parcells, we include tweets that poke fun of Bill, or even criticize him like one from former star linebacker Jason Taylor.
But first a tweet from Adam Schefter, ESPN's top NFL reporter, to his 3.2 million followers. (Click on the RETWEETS or FAVORITES link to read some entertaining remarks.)
