Steve Spurrier reacts to reaction of his joining Twitter.

South Carolina head coach Steve Spurrier said that "he didn't know anybody would pay attention" when he joined Twitter on Monday. That was before 44,400 fellow Twitter users followed him.

The Head Ball Coach was apparently blown away with the response.

“I have been very surprised (by the reaction),” Steve Spurrier said. “I think Connor Shaw was the first guy to send a Twitter back, or a Tweet back. That’s what you call it, a Tweet, isn’t it?”

Spurrier has said he doesn't plan to make any "controversial" tweets on his account, or "say anything negative." He says the account is solely for use as "a way of communicating with the Gamecock fans and I guess a bunch of former players out there.”

“I’ve always been a big believer that a person should not put all his business on the street, so I certainly will not put a whole bunch of business on the street,” he said."

Translation, don't expect any classic zingers from Spurrier on Twitter. That should dampen the enthusiasm of the blogosphere.
