Troy Polamalu Sets the Record Straight on His Twitter Account

This weekend, I linked to a Trib story talking about Troy Polamalu's Twitter account, which included a quote from Polamalu that said, "It's not me at all," referencing his popular online feed.

Well, that's not entirely true, as #43 directly addressed my recent post on his Twitter page today.

"In reference to this article, I assure you that I send out all tweets except for those that begin with "update", said Polamalu, linking to the MH story from Sunday.

So basically, it goes like this: when the word "update" precedes the tweet, it's usually something promotional that Troy is not writing. Recent examples:

UPDATE: Head & Shoulders has gone above and beyond this year by insuring Troy's locks for a cool $1 million http://tinyurl.com

UPDATE: Head & Shoulders just launched a website that’s all about Troy's ridiculously full and thick hair, http://www.Troyshair.com. 

Yeah, that doesn't sound like something Polamalu would write about himself.

Otherwise, the words are Troy's. That would be tweets like this: "
Strive to live in such a way that the words "living" and "praying" are synonymous and interchangeable. A life where you cannot tell when prayers begin or end and your daily actions are but the humble words to a life-long prayer"

As I noted on Sunday, I was sort of confused at the original Trib story, so I appreciate the clarification direct from Polamalu. Consider all gray areas eliminated.
