We need to talk about Lane Kiffin's Twitter account

Florida Atlantic is rolling. The Owls sit in first place in Conference USA's East Division, winners of four straight by an average of 25 points per game, including a 38-point blowout of West Division leader North Texas and a 14-point win at 2-time defending C-USA champion Western Kentucky.

FAU is playing with confidence, and head coach Lane Kiffin is tweeting with confidence. Let's stroll through Kiffin's last week on Twitter.

His week started with this viral retweet.

Here's what he tweeted after FootballScoop broke the news that Jim McElwain was out at Florida.

And here's another one not exactly downplaying any Florida speculation. Ahead of Alabama's game with LSU this Saturday night, here's Kiffin retweeting a fan video explaining why LSU will beat his former employer.

Speaking of videos, here's Kiffin retweeting a video of, stay with me here, a parody account of North Texas's former basketball coach that now seemingly exists to troll the UNT athletics department.

But Kiffin's biggest push on Twitter has been his hashtag slogan. Pretty much every head coach has one, and Kiffin's is #cometotheFAU or simply #theFAU.

Lane likes to use his to tell his former players to come visit him in Boca.

And that brings us to today's magnum opus, when the new King of College Football Twitter interacted with the King of All Twitter.
