Well, hold the phone.
After four upbeat tweets from a new @GTPaulJohnson account, even Johnson understood the humor in people disbelieving that it was actually him on Twitter.
For those that don't believe I'm actually tweeting... twitter.com/GTPaulJohnson/…

With that tweet he included the picture at the top of the post, with "#BelieveIt." Pretty funny, and it shows a side of Johnson we don't see too often. Probably will make it easier for him to get that blue "verified" checkmark on Twitter.
Mostly what it proves is that all coaches are going to be on social media at some point. Almost all of their potential recruits are now, so it seems obvious they would need to be too if they want to connect with them. No matter how much being on Twitter or Facebook doesn't really suit their personality.
Your move, Nick Saban.
