Jrue Holiday Joins Twitter, Joining Seven Sixers Teammates

Jrue Holiday has become the latest member of the Philadelphia 76ers to join Twitter; you can follow him at @YaBoyJHo11a. Teammate Louis Williams posted the news on his feed early Thursday morning.


Holiday is among the seven Sixers to join the social-networking site. Williams (@TeamLou23), Evan Turner (@thekidet), Andres Nocioni (@SoyElChapu), Spencer Hawes (@spencerhawes00), Marreese Speights (@Mospeights16), Thaddeus Young (@yungsmoove21), and Craig Brackins (@Cbrackins_33) also have accounts. That's in addition to the Sixers' official feed (@Sixers) and that of team PR director Michael Preston (@preston76). You can even follow team mascot Hip-Hop (@HipHop76).


"#Showyaluv [to Holiday]," implored Williams in his tweet introducing the man who starts ahead of him. It won't be too hard for Sixers fans to do that. The NBA's youngest starting point guard--and eighth-youngest player overall in 2010/11--had a strong sophomore campaign, averaging 14 points, 4 rebounds, 6.5 assists, and 1.5 steals without missing a single game. Moreover, he played well in the first postseason appearance of his young career, prompting Jordan Sams of Liberty Ballers to write Holiday "gave every Sixers fan a taste of what the future might look like." Apparently, said future now includes glimpses into Holiday's life in 140-character bursts.
