GREEN BAY, Wis. -- Green Bay Packers linebacker Nick Barnett carried his trademark emotional on-field demeanor over to his Twitter account this week, forcing him to do some backpedaling Wednesday.

But after flirting with the idea of abandoning his popular page on the social networking Web site, Barnett has decided he's no Twitter quitter. He's just going to back off for a while.

After Sunday's loss to Cincinnati, Barnett tweeted that he didn't agree with coaches' strategy of rotating him with other linebackers. Barnett also lashed out at fans who criticized him for celebrating a big play immediately after missing a tackle.
