NOT WORTH THE RISK: In Charlotte, Scott Fowler noted NFL Panthers QB Cam Newton is not on Twitter. Newton, speaking hypothetically, said, "The social media world has turned into ... they want to hear about [WR] Steve Smith or [RB] Jonathan Stewart drunk on North Tryon, rather than, 'He's on North Tryon giving away turkeys.' One wrong tweet to the wrong person could lead to so much." Newton added, "I think if you do 10 tweets -- you do nine amazing tweets they still don't outweigh the one bad tweet a person may send off. You may send an ex-girlfriend your real feelings on how you feel and she sends it to TMZ or sends it to the Charlotte Observer" (CHARLOTTE OBSERVER, 10/25).
