Behind the Scenes with Brad Bates: Twitter

OXFORD, Ohio - Tweet tweet! There's a new member of the Miami Athletic family on Twitter and it's none other than Miami Athletic Director Brad Bates. Despite an already busy schedule, Bates has joined the Twitterverse and will be tweeting away starting today (Wednesday). You can follow him at @MiamiU_ADb2.

Bates joins several of Miami's coaches and teams on Twitter but Miami's head man has big ideas for the micro-blogging site. He will be giving away several items to fans that follow him on Twitter, such as tickets to sporting events, food from concessions at events, free meals and more.

In addition to the giveaways, Bates will provide inside access to the Miami Athletic Department, promote Miami's corporate sponsors, athletes and RedHawk teams and will also be giving directives to fans at Miami sporting events, starting this weekend when Miami Hockey hosts Northern Michigan Friday and Saturday.

Be sure to follow Bates on Twitter so you don't miss out on an opportunity to have dinner with the Athletic Director, the chance to win free tickets and keep informed at sporting events when Miami fans do their cheers. You never know what Bates will tweet next so be sure to check his tweets regularly.
