Wisconsin teams lead the pack in social media
OnMilwaukee.com caught up with a couple of players regarding their Twitter accounts. Here is what they had to say.
OnMilwaukee.com: When did you start tweeting?
Tobias Harris: I joined in the early stages when it first came out (in 2006). It wasn't as popular. It started getting popular when I was going through the (college) recruiting process with a lot of college fans following me.
Tom Crabtree: I joined Twitter in the summer of 2010. I joined because I had been hearing about from friends and in the news. I found it to be a cool way to get news and hear from interesting people.
Kameron Loe: Honestly, at first, it started off as a media kind of thing just to get information. I was just kind of following people for probably three or four months before I even started Tweeting. I would follow some of my favorite bands, a comedian or two, maybe a politician or whatever. So I just kind of, at first, wanted to know stuff so I'd check my Twitter account.
OMC: What would it take to get Scott Skiles on Twitter?
Larry Sanders: Probably a paycheck. (Laughs)
Harris (exhaling and rolling his head back with a smile): I don't know, man. I don't know.
OMC: Do you compare follow numbers with teammates?
Sanders: We don't compare but Brockman would get us all. I wouldn't want a bunch of bad followers. I like my (seven) thousand fans.
OMC: What's your approach with tweeting?
Harris: There's the entertainment that you want. It's like Google – you can search for pretty much anything you want on there. And having fans on there that follow what you're doing and keep track of you in the ways that you want them to.
Sanders: I like to tweet lyrics or inspirational quotes. I look at it as if a 9-year-old could be looking at your account.
OMC: When do you decide to reply or retweet?
Sanders: If (a tweet) catches your eye, or if they're supporting the team, or if it's someone's birthday. Something like that.
Harris: If it's just something that catches my eye, if they're looking out for you. You get lot of haters and every now and then I'll reply to one of them but not really. I just reply when I'm looking at it or if it's something that appeals to me.
