Tweeting with Chamique Holdsclaw

Taking inspiration from the Seattle Storm and Swin Cash, the WNBA and Atlanta Dream arranged a Twitterview with the newest member of the Dream, Chamique Holdsclaw. Fans were able to tweet their questions to Chamique from 1 p.m. to 2 p.m. on Thursday and Chamique tweeted them back with her answers.

Stay tuned this season as we plan to do a twitterview each week with one of the many WNBA players on Twitter. To see the full list of players on Twitter, as well as links to Facebook pages, blogs, the WNBA widget and more, visit our Connect with the WNBA page.
