As is tradition (2 years = tradition!), TWIKSM presents a brief rundown of some of our top draft prospects and their main social media accounts, for your rainy day perusal.
Sad to say that our boy R.J. has a very Duke-ish and polished Insta account, with nothing but well lit and well cropped photos. However, his Stories are more dynamic, with more immediate locations and music and thoughts. This is a pattern we’ll see often: highly curated IG posts with looser Stories (which self-destruct after 24 hours), including this shoutout to NY:
His Twitter is mostly retweets of things about him, or other basketball-related items. When he does his own tweets they are largely thank yous or support of other players & teams. Very polite and enthusiastic.
OK, the first thing we need to talk about is the fact that Ja’s Twitter is @igotgame_12 and his IG is @igotgame12_ and it’s sending me into some kind of OCD spiral. Stay in one place, underscore!
Ja is a big IG curator, with only 8 posts still up. Or maybe ever? Again, the action is in the Stories, which are mostly workout snippets. And music (and by music we mean a screenshot of either a phone or a car stereo to show what is playing) (we?) and some memes:
Ja is a prolific and enthusiastic tweeter, with a lot of laugh/cry and forehead slapping emoji quote-tweeting, i.e.:
He also did a Q&A from Twitter HQ which begins here:
On Instagram, Reddish is mostly prefessional-type photos. There is this baby-Cam gem, however:
Cam’s Twitter hasn’t been updated since August 2018, with the somewhat ironic:
Back, but not to Twitter, apparently.
Also, Cam does not have a FaceBook. How do I know? Well...
Jarrett is not verified on Twitter. This could be a Jarrett Culver impersonator. Who knows? His IG is verified, however.
That IG also has only four posts because Jarrett is devoted to zen-like minimalism (maybe), but he has some perma-Stories posted. They’re mostly hanging out with friends. I like this picture:
FYI, Mitchell Robinson follows Jarrett on the ‘gram.
JC’s another big quote-tweeter, and likes the praying hands:
Sooooo, Coby’s Insta is basically a hair blog.
His Twitter is abundant and unverified and he ends almost all of his tweets with #FMF, I don’t know why.
I have learned from Darius’s Twitter that he is a sneakerhead and that his father was also a point guard. This is the whole idea of social media, yes? Bringing the world closer through shared interests.
I have way more heat than that! Ask anybody who has been in my closet https://t.co/6krJcTGaQn— Darius Garland (@dariusgarland22) May 30, 2018
I have learned from his Instagram that he is with Klutch Sports and that he can do the robot (is that you, Darius?):
