Did you ever wonder what Mystics players do when they are not playing basketball? If you want to find out, all you need to do is sign up for a Twitter account. Almost all of the current Mystics can be found tweeting, and while some are more active than others, chances are you will be able to see what your favorite Mystics are thinking about at any time of the day.
One of the best reasons fans should follow the Mystics players on Twitter is because it allows them to get a sense of the different players personalities that they may not get to see on the court. In addition, often times you will see the players tweet at each other (think of this like a public text message), which can also give fans the chance to understand the chemistry that exists between teammates.
The team now provides the players Twitter handles on the jumbo tron when they are introduced during home games. Look for their handles up on screen the next time you attend a game at Verizon Center!
