Season-long Series Concludes With Josh Reddick, Jason Demers, MC Hammer And One Lucky Fan Taking Over @Warriors Account For Entire Game
The Golden State Warriors will complete their season-long Twitter Takeover Series by hosting a Twitter Takeover Night on Sunday, March 30 against the New York Knicks, featuring local athletes, celebrities and one lucky fan taking over the team’s official account – @warriors - throughout the entire game, the team announced today. The takeover will feature Oakland Athletics right fielder Josh Reddick (@joshreddick16), San Jose Sharks defenseman Jason Demers (@jasondemers5), entertainer & Bay Area native MC Hammer (@MCHammer) and one lucky fan who will be chosen through a contest on warriors.com and Twitter. Each participant will provide a unique perspective of the game as it’s unfolding, while also interacting with fans who tweet or reply to @warriors on Twitter.
Throughout the 2013-14 season, the Warriors have hosted a player from each of the major Bay Area professional sports teams - including the San Francisco 49ers, Oakland Raiders, San Francisco Giants, Santa Cruz Warriors and after Sunday, the San Jose Sharks and Oakland Athletics - to manage the @warriors Twitter account. To conclude the series, the team has invited the legendary entertainer and noted Warriors fan MC Hammer, as well as one lucky fan, to represent #DubNation on a night that will truly celebrate the spirit of basketball in the Bay Area.
