Good morning, 12s.
Here’s a look at what’s ‘out there’ for today – Monday, June 24 – about your Seattle Seahawks:
ICYMI: Welcome To My Snapchat
“Welcome to my Snapchat, welcome to my Snapchat,” repeats Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson about four times over in a video that he posted to his Twitter account on Saturday morning. “Danger Russ, Danger Russ,” he then began to sing, promoting his newly-created Snapchat account.
If you’ve used the multimedia messaging app in the past year, you probably recognize the filter of a dancing bunny that Wilson used in his ‘selfie’ video. It’s safe to say that the Super Bowl XLVIII champ was looking to recruit some followers as the text in the video read, “Follow me!!!” And included his Snapchat handle.
Based on the high-volume of views and overall engagement on the Twitter video, my guess is that Wilson probably jumped into the social media platform with a large number of followers. I think my favorite part of his post was probably the “Yeee!” that was added in at the end of the video.
Social Post Of The Day
Today’s ‘Social Post of the Day’ comes from Seahawks Legend Doug Baldwin Jr., as he retweets a post with photos from his Family Combine event that he hosted in Renton on Sunday.
