Hey there, Lynx fans! My name is Bridget Anderson, the Social Media Coordinator here at the Minnesota Timberwolves and Lynx. I am very excited to present you with the first edition of Social on the Sidelines, a column Social Media Associate Shahbaz Khan and I are writing together for those social junkies out there who can't get enough of the #LosLynx (and their crazy antics).
While there are many responsibilities that fall under my role as the social media coordinator of a two-time WNBA Championship team, the best part of my job is that I get to connect you with our team -- and in turn, connect our team to you. It is truly something sitting in that loud arena packed with cheering fans. Through social media, those inaudible chants and cheers are vocalized through the Twitter feeds, Facebook posts and Instagram photos. Not many people get to sit in my spot, and I love every minute of it!
Hey Lynx fans - my name is Shahbaz Khan and this is the first edition of our "Social on the Sidelines" column. I'm the new Social Media Associate for the Minnesota Timberwolves and Lynx, and I'm excited to say I'll be here throughout the Lynx season (which hopefully will be going on quite awhile)! My position entails many things, but to simplify it: I have the best job in the world. Each day, I'm able to get to Target Center, watch the best team in the WNBA play/practice and connect with the best fans in sports (that means you).
Social on the Sidelines is a concept Bridget and I are very excited to share with you all. As Social Media continually evolves, we'll be gathering the best trends and posts surrounding the Lynx organization. Whether it's player posts, new LosLynx trends or opportunities for you to get involved, you'll find it here, on Social on the Sidelines.
Without further ado, here's what's to keep an eye out for around Lynx social media:
Devereaux Peters' GameDay Instagram Posts. Dev tends to posts some hilarious videos on GameDay's that are can't miss moments. Check out an example HERE and make sure to follow Dev on Instagram @mspeters14.
Janel McCarville's #GotGot selfies. Ever wonder how the Lynx have fun when they're away from Target Center? Look no further than Janel's Instagram account - Janel finds dozed off teammates and makes sure to take selfies with them. Yes, it's as amazing as it sounds. Make sure to follow Janel on instagram at @janelmccarville
Maya Moore is undoubtedly one of the top players in the league but we'd like to think she's also one of the most stylish players on the court! Check out Maya's game kicks HERE!
