This is pretty much the perfect 21st century NFL story, pairing the coldly impersonal nature of personnel moves with the vapidity of social media relationships. After the Steelers made their final roster cuts, head coach Mike Tomlin promptly unfollowed them on Twitter.

It's no big loss. Tomlin, who joined Twitter in July, might be the least essential follow in a galaxy of boring, platitude-spouting, unengaged athletes using the service.
