Late in the evening of June 25, 2011, as I was enjoying the aftermath of Marco Andretti’s second-career IndyCar victory in the Iowa Corn Indy 250, I reached for my phone during a commercial break. Much to my surprise, I had a large number of Twitter mentions and text messages. They were all from the same person, a friend asking why I wasn’t “tweeting my head off” over Marco’s victory. She assumed I wasn’t watching the race, since I hadn’t been posting about it. I guess she assumed I normally tweeted or posted on facebook during races.
The truth is, I generally stay off Twitter and facebook during races.
