Milwaukee Brewers: Brewing Social Media Battles

There are some very strong social media presences from teams in every league, mainly on Twitter. The Milwaukee Brewers are slowly adding themselves to the list with some of their recent tweets.

The Milwaukee Brewers have started off their season with a Twitter presence as strong as Eric Thames.

Think about the University of Maryland-Baltimore County. The Retrievers made history in the NCAA Men’s Basketball tournament. They upset the University of Virginia Cavaliers, becoming the first sixteen seed to upset a one. But their presence on Twitter was much more impressive. They trolled people left and right with their tweets. As a mid-major school, UMBC is in a way similar to the Brewers. They are a smaller market team, and their Twitter presence is starting to resemble that of UMBC.

Yes, the account tweets out lineups and game scores, but all of their other Tweets are what really make fans want to follow the account.

The Stadium Tweet

There have been many games postponed and cancelled already. Mother Nature hasn’t been kind to the game of baseball so far in the 2018 season. Fortunately for the Milwaukee Brewers, the roof on Miller Park is very convenient in this weather.

Even with all of the snow that has hit Wisconsin, the Crew has yet to have a home game postponed or cancelled. And it won’t happen. Miller Park allows the squad to play rain or shine. Or snow, I guess.

But the Milwaukee Brewers Twitter account couldn’t resist poking a little fun at the other teams who are not so fortunate, tweeting a picture of the snowy outside of Miller Park. They captioned it, “Not having a roof on your home sounds miserable in this weather,” and tagged a few teams in the Tweet.

Funny stuff.

Trolling the Reds

The Cincinnati Reds messed with the wrong team’s Twitter before game three of the series. They played on the similarity between the last names of Jesse Winker and Henry Winkler, the actor who portrayed “The Fonz.”

After the Milwaukee Brewers defeated the Reds 2-0, taking the series victory, this is what they did on Twitter.

Again, super funny.

Although other teams do things like this too, the Milwaukee Brewers have set the precedent for a great season on social media all around the league.
