Despite some technical problems, on this Sports Geek Podcast we chat with Dan Pinne from the Storm about their shiny new Twitter handle which will be front and centre on their Auckland 9s jersey. We look back at #SBNight to answer the question how to break into the sports business.
On this podcast you’ll find out about:
- Why the Melbourne Storm changed handle to @Storm
- Importance of teams to promote all channels as not everyone is on Twitter
- How I started Sports Geek with a trip to LA, Dallas & New York
- What platforms I used to connect with Mark Cuban and ended up in Mavs locker room
