Sean Payton, the man steering the ship for the New Orleans Saints, has made a lot of headlines this offseason after re-joining the team after serving a suspension courtesy of the event known as Bountygate.

Now Payton is making headlines in the realm of social media after officially joining the Twitterverse.

There have been a plethora of parody account to pop up over the years posing as the controversial coach, but the real thing has never actually occurred  Payton is very secretive with the comings and goings of his team, much in the same way Bill Belichick acts as head coach of the New England Patriots.

We have a feeling Belichick will not follow in Payton’s footsteps.

The New Orleans Saints’ official Twitter account confirmed Payton’s joining of the Twitter realm:

Of course, we’d be remiss if we didn’t show you some of Payton’s Tweets, at least the most important ones out of his three so far!

So now we know how Payton came to join the world of Twitter, although we have an inkling his kids did not tie him to a chair and create an account for him. Of course, Payton then went on to shout out Saints nation with his second tweet:

Go ahead and give the leader of the Saints a follow. We doubt he will be very entertaining by the time the season rolls around, but it’s hard to justify not following the man in charge!
