Reno Aces vs. Colorado Springs Sky Sox in Twitter 'war'
They're also pretty good at the whole Twitter thing.
As of June 6, the Aces' official Twitter account (@AceBall) had over 13,500 followers -- not bad for a Minor League team.
Every other team in the Pacific Coast League follows the Aces' account, except for one -- the Colorado Springs Sky Sox.
In an effort to get the Sky Sox to follow them, the social media peeps in Reno decided to create the hashtag #fakeskysoxfacts -- you know, put a little pressure on them all while having fun.
The results have been pretty hilarious.
...to rectify this, we're posting #fakeskysoxfacts until they have no choice but to follow us and correct the mistakes. Let's go:— Reno Aces (@Aceball) June 5, 2013
Before the Sky Sox moved to town in 1988, Security Service Field was originally an Olive Garden. #fakeskysoxfacts— Reno Aces (@Aceball) June 5, 2013
It's been over 24 hours now since we started the #fakeskysoxfacts campaign, surely they're following us by now. Let's go check.— Reno Aces (@Aceball) June 6, 2013
Whatever, that's cool. Whatever. We can keep up the #fakeskysoxfacts as long as necessary. Whatever.— Reno Aces (@Aceball) June 6, 2013
"Sky Socks" was the original working title of the 1986 motion picture "Top Gun". #fakeskysoxfacts— Reno Aces (@Aceball) June 6, 2013
Personally, we hope the Sky Sox never follow the Aces...this stuff is good.
