I’ve written before about how the Kings use social media well, with their great use of +1 for information. This time I’m talking about voice, and the OTHER Kings. This is the LA Kings. Now, I’m not a hockey fan, so I haven’t been following the LA Kings Twitter feed, but apparently Deadspin has and they are impressed. In going to check it out, I am too. The below Tweet and quick comment is from Deadspin.
The fans here look pretty bummed they haven’t been able to wave their pom poms.

This is damn near the perfect tweet. It uses access—a dispatch from a road game—to gently sass the opposing fans.
This isn’t the only on. This is the latest tweet:
It’s got a little attitude, but most importantly they are speaking in a voice the fans can relate to. That’s what we all shoot for, finding that voice. According to the article it’s run by “Pat Donahue, 27, the Kings’ digital media coordinator, who co-writes the Twitter account with Dewayne Hankins, 31, the Kings’ director of digital media.”
