Social media has completely revolutionized the means by which fans can interact with the players they see take the field for four quarters on Sunday afternoons. While interaction once seemed impossible, now it's an everyday occurrence.
Be it a follow, retweet, Instagram like or anything in between, interacting with players has never been easier. Some, we're talking to you Steve Weatherford, have turned tweeting into an art form.
Today, Big Blue View introduces a new weekly 'Tweets of the Week' segment. Each Saturday, we'll compile the top posts from Giants' players throughout the week be them funny, serious or witty.
When not paving the way for Giants' running backs or keeping defensive ends off Eli Manning's back, Justin Pugh is offering fashion advice.
