Ok, I think I'm following you. You need to tweet something! What should your first tweet be?

You talked me into it. That is a great starter.
If Jimmy V was a programmer like me, he would have said it like this: while (!(succeed = try()));

I will see if I can work on getting a better header image in place this week. Maybe a montage or something with pictures from all of the current teams.

Only problem is it seems like we are little behind in posting current season game photos, etc. or maybe I cant find them. And if I do find them, what can I do with them without violating copyrights of WIU and/or Sidearm?

You can see some of them on VPC's site: https://wiu.photoshelter.com/galleries/ ... 019-Season
I don't know why it's labeled 2019 season, but there's photos from all the home games so far, plus the games at Montana State and Illinois. You can link directly to each photo's page...like, for example, Khalen Saunders levitating a football after his TD catch against YSU: https://wiu.photoshelter.com/galleries/ ... 2-175r-JPG
I think that's the best you can do legally.

For the header, I need images I can manipulate. I think we need an official Leatherneck Nation photographer, volunteer position of course. If WIU football tweets out something with a photo attached to it, is that photo fair game for everyone? From what I can tell, the answer is "It Depends".

This one is more for the profile photo (although you can use it for the header if you want). I took this photo, so copyright is mine and I give you full permission to use it however you'd like:

I also took one more "straight on" if you'd prefer that.
