Twitter Assignment

I chose to cover the New York Knicks because of their high player payroll, allure of being a New York team, and they have pretty good individual players on the team. Their issue this year has been that they haven’t been able to mesh well which has caused many rumors throughout the season about trades and possible firings. Also my favorite player, Iman Shumpert plays for New York. All of this drama will continue until mid to late April when the NBA season, and school semester will be almost complete.

I noticed that the twitter accounts I followed regarding my coverage of the New York Knicks beat tweet several times a day. Their posts include photos, links to box scores and videos.  About a little more than half of the people I follow work for the local New York media, or directly with NBA news.

The ones that aren’t technically by an individual provide good information on rumors that are circulating the Knicks and other NBA teams at the same time. FisolaNYDN and KNICKSpeeps are the best two accounts I follow. I really never see the accounts I follow doing any replying but they do however on occasion will retweet a tweet they like.
