Who the Ballgirls are following on Twitter
This past Home Run Derby took the game of baseball to a whole new level as we followed our favorite players on Twitter feeds to get their thoughts on the game and enjoy their light-hearted trash talking with each other. My personal favorite tweet from the Derby was from our new favorite Phillies player Hunter Pence.
With Twitter and other social media channels being a great way to stay on top your favorite sports teams, I asked the ballgirls who they follow, like, or subscribe to. Hopefully, all of you non-tweeters out there will have no choice but to sign up after finding out what you’re missing out on!
I just recently made a Twitter account and am still trying to figure the whole thing out! I have started to use it to keep up with sports by following the official Phillies and Eagles sites. I also follow the Fight On State page to stay tuned in to all my Penn State sports news! Even though I’d like to consider myself up-to-date with the new technology fads, I’d still rather watch a few minutes of SportsCenter instead!
While I don’t have a Twitter, I do have a facebook and of course I follow the Philadelphia Phillies page and the Phillies Ballgirls page! Also, I hesitantly admit that I do love to follow anything and anyone that reports on the San Francisco Giants. I particularly love watching “The Franchise” on Showtime and recommend it to any baseball fan, regardless of which team you’re a fan of!
MLB and ESPN
I don’t follow anyone on twitter, but I get “tweets” in the form of texts, emails, and facebook chats from those ballgirls that do!
I’m new to the twitter world but I have found that Erin Andrews gives great sports updates and pictures!
I don’t tweet/follow anyone on Twitter, in fact I don’t even know if I fully understand the whole Twitter thing but I sure hear enough about it. I have an ESPN and Phillies app on my phone that gives me updates when there’s breaking news so don’t think I’m completely out of the loop.
I don’t have a twitter account but I “like” the Phillies and Sportsnation (one of my favorite shows) on Facebook. I also do weekly check-ups on some blog websites.
It just so happens that this is my favorite time of the twitter year, the #tradedeadline! I initially joined around this time last year to get the most up-to-date news at the MLB trade deadline. The anticipation of the Phillies 2010 big move was addicting. It was no secret that the Phillies were looking to add to their starting rotation, and I couldn’t wait to hear the news. I began by following @espn, @Phillies, @philaphillies, @ToddZolecki, @Jaysonst, @MLB, and any baseball/Phillies reporter that I could find. After plenty of rumors and speculation, I remember reading the breaking news on twitter that the Phillies had made a move for Roy Oswalt. It proved to be a great addition to the Phillies starting rotation and a true sign of the Phillies desire to win in 2010 and years to come. This year, the 2011 #tradedeadline has been just as exciting. The end of the NFL lockout has added to the twitter excitement as July comes to a close. NFL teams are scrambling to sign free agents now that a new deal is in place, and the Phillies have made apparent their desire to obtain a right-handed bat, as has been much talked about throughout the 2011 season thus far. I was so excited to hear the news that they had made the trade for Hunter Pence and read tweets from other elated fans. In addition to the baseball tweeters above, some of my favorite people to follow now for Philly sports information are @CrossingBroad, @The700Level, @HighCheese, and athletes like @JimmyRollins and @MikeStutes. Needless to say, the end of the NFL lockout and the approach of the MLB #tradedeadline has had my twitter feed on a constant update.
Having recently joined the nest on Twitter I’m still learning the ins and outs of it all. At first I only followed a few close friends/family, musicians, and performers such as Reverand Run, Kanye West, and Jay Z. Now that I’m expanding my circle, I’ve delved more into the sports, and specifically the Phillies arena. I still get most of my info from the guys on Baseball Tonight, however for even more up-to-date info I’ve began to follow a few groups such as BestPhilsBlogs and the official Phillies twitter page. Both keep me informed on what’s going on in MLB when I’m on the go.
Blake shelton is mine!
I follow @Phillies and @JimmyRollins and other popular sports bloggers to stay on top of baseball news. The one page I find funny, even though Pete Orr doesn’t actually write these tweets, is @PeteOrrFacts. I’d love to know who writes these clever one-liners, but whoever it is, keeps me entertained with every Twitter update.
I follow @Philaphillies of course! I have the tweets go directly to my phone so I can get all the latest updates.
