One of Chris Del Conte’s biggest strengths at TCU was his accessibility to fans. Now, the Texas athletic director is engaging Longhorns fans in a way none of his predecessors would even dream.

Del Conte spent time Monday — on Christmas Day, no less — answering questions posed to him on Twitter.

Some of the answers were not exactly specific. He hasn’t been on the job for one full month yet. But Del Conte is answering UT fans’ questions with the same zeal he did those posed by TCU fans during his eight years leading the Horned Frogs.

Legendary UT athletic director DeLoss Dodds didn’t have to deal with social media during his multi-decade run atop UT athletics. Steve Patterson only dipped his toe into the Twitter waters, and Mike Perrin allowed another staffers to issue tweets on his behalf.

Del Conte issues his own tweets in his own unique voice. Here is a sampling of the tweets he responded to on Monday. Del Conte’s official timeline can be found @_delconte.
