Social Media

Twitter Not A Strong Point For The Phillies

In today’s world, use of social media is essential for any organization. In sports, social media just as important. Even if a team isn’t performing well on the field/court/ice, social media can keep fans interested and entertained. Let’s take the Sixers for example. They are one of the NBA’s worst teams in terms of wins and losses over the last couple years. But their Twitter account has been one of the best I’ve seen. They’ve mastered the ability to keep a fun and ultimately positive vibe in the midst of losing so many games.

The same cannot be said of the Phillies. A couple days ago, Sean Dolinar over at Fangraphs wrote about the offseason Twitter usage amongst MLB teams.

The Phillies ranked near the bottom in in Tweets per day, Tweets with media, and overall interactions.

Now, the Phillies aren’t the worst team, but their current situation puts them in a position where social media popularity could really benefit them. Fans are starting to lose interest.

It’s time to step your game up, Phillies.

Photo Day has always been one of my favorite games to attend during the Phillies season. My grandparents would take my younger brother and I every season for most of our adolescence years.  Those experiences down on the Vet turf getting pictures with the likes of Dave Hollins and Gregg Jefferies remain some of my fondest with both my now deceased grandparents and as a Phillies fan in general. This year, will be no exception, as my father and I will be attending the game whilst taking in the atmosphere at field level like I did in my youth.

I was on Instagram today doing what everyone does there, liking pictures of cats in outfits, when I came across this photo on the official Phillies Instagram account:
