NBA Twitter is Good. And of all 30 teams in the Association, the Sixers have the second-best account.
That’s according to a new ranking from culture site Complex, which praises @sixers for its fire tweets and A+ gif usage. When you’ve got the Rihanna-loving, Twitter-owning, stat-dominating Joel Embiid on the squad, it only makes sense to build up your team’s social media… assets.
“Philadelphia’s account perfectly melds silly with serious and was able to make even the post-Embiid doldrums of the 2016-17 season enjoyable for Sixers fans,” Complex writes. “And basically everything they do is on point.”

When reached for comment, a Sixers spokesperson said the social media team is excited about the ranking.
“They say they’ll spend the summer looking for ways to take over the top spot next season,” the spokesperson tells Technical.ly. The Portland Trail Blazers took home the top spot this year.
No word yet on the specifics of the Twitter training regimen, but stay tuned.
