The @PhoenixSuns will host the 4th Annual #SunsTweetUp, driven by Discount Tire (@DiscountTire), when the Suns host their longtime rivals, @Lakers, on Saturday, April 7. Tip-off is set for 7 p.m.

The special night will feature many exclusive activities, including early entry into US Airways Center (@USAirwaysCenter) to watch the Suns warm up, Twitter contests and prizes throughout the evening, an exclusive #SunsTweetUp t-shirt and group seating with fellow tweeps.

Following the game, the Suns’ tweeps will be invited to attend a private Q&A session with Suns Head Coach Alvin Gentry (@AlvinGentry). Coach Gentry is one of 13 members of the Phoenix Suns team to have a Twitter account.

“Twitter and social media are great ways for the Suns players, coaches and executives to get to know our fans,” said Coach Gentry. “Fans can interact with the team and get to know us better on, and off, the court.”

Special #SunsTweetUp packages are available in the lower level for $194.75, and in the upper level for $109.75. Suns tweeps can take advantage of this offer by visiting the information page online at and using the password “tweetup.”

Suns fans who already have their tickets to see the Suns #BeatLA, can join the postgame activities by wearing their Suns gear and checking in on Foursquare or Facebook when they arrive to the game.
