Following the Golden State Warriors on Twitter: A guide

New, comments

One of the greatest developments of the basketball experience in the past few years is the vibrant social media scene. Now, you can watch a Warriors game while following along on Twitter: digesting Vines, reading hot takes, and getting inside information from inside people. Here are some good follows to begin your Warriors experience on Twitterx.

When Stephen Curry goes off in a Warriors game, the Twitterverse goes wild.

Viral Vines proliferate immediately, the reactions from every three-pointer rush in at the same time, and people shake their collective heads at how nobody else would dare take, let alone make, that shot.

If you're looking to expand your Warriors game experience, here's a list of sixty-something great Twitter follows I compiled.

Here's a quick rundown of the key players in the Warriors Twitter world.

The Players

Stephen Curry (@StephenCurry30) isn't the most active on Twitter, but he's good for a funny picture or quote here and there.

Draymond Green (@Money23Green) tweets extensive trash talk, emojis, and general hilarity.  Andre Iguodala (@andre) will occasionally tweet short, extremely vague subtweets that leaves everybody guessing what's up.  Of the rest of the team, Andrew Bogut (@andrewbogut), Marreese Speights (@Mospeights16), and Harrison Barnes (@hbarnes) have interesting accounts.

The Insiders

Sideline reporter Rosalyn Gold-Onwude (@ROSGO21) has the best insight into the Warriors' locker room (her Snapchat is also insanely fun).  Draymond's mother, Mary Babers-Green (@BabersGreen), talks even more trash than Draymond, and will light up anybody on the team for not playing well.

One of my favorite follows is Julie Phayer (@juliephayer), who runs the Warriors' social media, and is always good for some dank memes, gifs, and vids.

Writers

The Holy Grail of follows for Warriors basketball is Ethan Sherwood Strauss (@SherwoodStrauss), who writes about the team for ESPN.  He knows the team well, has a lot of great insight, and writes recaps for almost every game. Other Bay Area beat writers include Marcus Thompson (@ThompsonScribe), Rusty Simmons (@Rusty_SFChron), and Monte Poole (@MontePooleCSN). Over at WarriorsWorld, Danny Leroux (@DannyLeroux) and Jordan Ramirez (@JRAM_91) always have good Warriors-specific content.

Among the national writers, Nick Hauselman (@BBALLBREAKDOWN) and Amin Elhassan (@AminESPN) have enlightening and entertaining in-game analysis. At GSOM (@unstoppablebaby), most of the writers have active Twitters.  Bram (@bramkincheloe) and Nate (@NateP_SBN) mostly run our Twitter account, and Andy (@AndyKHLiu) tweets a lot.

My handle is @HugoKitano, if anybody's wondering. Enjoy!
