Right about now I've got approximately a million tabs and 20 different windows open on my computer. It feels like information overload, but with things like Twitter, we can now get the instant reactions of virtually anyone to anything that happens. When the Detroit Lions picked Auburn defensive tackle Nick Fairley with the 13th pick of the 2011 NFL Draft, Twitter exploded, especially with Lions players.
