Former UH receiver Greg Salas has learned friendship has its limits.
Salas was informed he could not accept any more friend requests after reaching Facebook’s maximum of 5,000 per account.
“I don’t want to delete anybody,” Salas said.
But he wanted to remain in contact with his friends, family and growing fan base. A few days ago, he started a Twitter account.
“I want to get everybody on the Twitter before I have to start deleting,” Salas said. Twitter is “a good way to communicate.”
Several with Warriors ties have embraced the social networks. Former UH slotback Davone Bess posts updates of his foundation’s activities through Facebook and Twitter. Fans can follow running back Alex Green’s workouts with his daily tweets. Wideout Darius Bright, defensive tackle Zach Masch and cornerback Tank Hopkins are among current Warriors who tweet. Even head coach Greg McMackin has a Twitter account.
Salas said he is learning shortcuts to stay within the 140-character limit per tweet.
Although he remains unsigned while awaiting the end of the NFL lockout, Salas treated himself to the new white iPhone.
“I’m good at texting,” he said. “”I just got a new iPhone. It’s helping me with my networking, I guess.”
Salas continues to train daily. He has joined future Ram teammates in player-orchestrated workouts in St. Louis and Arizona. He hopes to visit Hawaii this summer, but won’t be able to attend Friday’s UH fund-raiser at the Honolulu Country Club. (He shipped autographed items that will be used in the silent auction.)
In his spare time, he will tweet.
“I’ll post whenever I can,” he said. “But I’m not on there all day.”
