Since we’re right in the middle of the NBA and NHL playoffs, we thought it was time to check in with Twitter and see how and what some of the leagues’ top teams are doing. Here’s a list of some of our favorite basketball and hockey teams on Twitter and why we love them, in no particular order.
Golden State Warriors (NBA). They make extensive use of Vines, GIFs and emoji. But when you’ve got Steph Curry to work with, your job isn’t that hard.

Atlanta Hawks (NBA). They retweet and share lots of pictures of and from fans. This encourages a ton of engagement from the community.

Pittsburgh Penguins (NHL). They interact frequently with fans and share a lot from the locker room. Plus, they use the #partyhard hashtag with lots of cute GIFs.
