You Should Let Us Take Over Your Social Media for a Day

Posted By on Fri, Mar 21, 2014 at 4:00 PM


In what probably seemed like a good idea at the time, on Tuesday, the NBA's Atlanta Hawks turned over their Twitter account to Deadspin.com's Drew Magary. PR stunts like this sort of make you wonder if anyone in the Hawks organization thought about the consequences of their actions at any time after the bong session where it originated - after all, Magary's most famous feature for Deadspin is titled the "Thursday Afternoon NFL Dick Joke Jamboroo" - but hey, it was only way day and who the hell cares about the Hawks right now anyhow? (They currently hold the last playoff spot in the dismal Eastern Conference, currently set to likely get annihilated by the Indiana Pacers in the first round.)

However, the comedy gold of Magary's Twitter takeover (renaming the team the Death Hawks, tying imaginary giveaways to metal albums, etc.) made me think that we at the Tucson Weekly could provide a similar service to some local organization or business. Of course, we would allow you, local person running a Twitter account, the opportunity create a few guidelines so you can keep your job when the day is over, but otherwise, it's Dan and Henry running wild, hashtagging like crazy (or something like that).

Let us know which of you suckers lucky people would like to get the Weekly Twitter treatment.
