D-League Twitter Search, Former BayHawks on Twitter

Tuesday, August 11, 2009

Facebook and MySpace have their place in the ever-entangled (World Wide) Web of social media, but when it comes to tracking celebrities and athletes directly these days, Twitter seems to be the most popular destination.

Numerous NBA stars have made headlines through Twitter. From Shaquille O'Neal (@THE_REAL_SHAQ) informing the public of his plans to drop by the White House to the follower contest between Chris Bosh (@chrisbosh) and Charlie Villanueva (@CV31) to Kevin Love (@kevin_love) breaking the news that the Timberwolves were firing Kevin McHale, there is no shortage of NBA tweets to be read and enjoyed.

But what about the D-League?

Like all things D-League, it's hard to find a comprehensive listing. Even the fantastic compilation of basketball-related Twitter accounts found at binarybasketball.com fails to list any D-League teams/players, although it at least includes the D-League's own official Twitter account (@nbadleague).

If anyone knows of an existing list of D-League-related Twitter accounts, please pass along the link in the comments. In the meantime, here's the (admittedly very short) list of BayHawks-related Twitter accounts to go ahead and follow.

(Shameless self-promotion? You betcha.)
@ErieBayHawks (Official Erie BayHawks)

As far as I can tell, the only former BayHawk on Twitter right now is 2008-09 All-D-League 1st teamer Erik Daniels (@danielserik). But if I missed someone that didn't come up through Twitter's rudimentary "Find People" search, please fill me in.
