Are you adept at expressing your thoughts in 140-character snippets?
If so, the University of Michigan basketball team has a job for you.
The athletic department is looking for a tweeter to be the voice of Wolverines basketball in the 2012-13 season. According to the department, the individual would connect with fans throughout game day under the Twitter monicker @umichbball, the official basketball twitter account for the school.
Sounds fun, right?
Those interested should submit a tweet that sums up why they're the best pick and a season preview writing sample of 100 words.
Be warned: The position comes with no pay, but the tweeter does get free tickets, an all-access pass to practice and free food.
According to the athletic department posting, candidates must be available for all games during the 2012-13 season, including the Big Ten and NCAA Tournament. Entries will be accepted through Tuesday, Oct.16.
The athletic department held a similar contest for basketball last year.
