I’ve created some lists on Twitter in an effort to help fans and other members of the media in their efforts to support and follow the many people of WNBA Twitter that put in countless hours in covering this league.
They are not a perfect solution or a catch-all, but these lists give you one place to follow and interact with this wonderful community — ask questions, discuss games together as they’re live, and share. Share the work of others that you enjoy reading with your friends and followers.
David Siegel, host of the Connecticut Sun’s SunCast, spoke earlier this month on LaChina Robinson’s Around the Rim Podcast on the importance of a retweet — that reading articles and listening to podcast episodes and watching videos alone is not enough in today’s media environment.

Simple shows of support can go a long way in showing writers and editors that a particular angle or story was well-received. And interaction between media and fans about a league that we both follow so closely will only make the community stronger and help to draw more people in.
These lists can be especially helpful as you’re watching a game live. Pull up the list and you’ll be able to see what others are saying and have a chance to interact with people watching the same thing you are — an effort that’s much tougher to do from your main timeline. (Twitter lists show you tweets in chronological order; the main timeline won’t necessarily do the same and comes with much more clutter.)
Just want to see the links that people share? Subscribe to these Twitter lists and log in to Nuzzel, which links directly to your Twitter account. Under the ‘Your Other Feeds’ header, select one of the lists, and you’ll be able to just see the links shared by the people in that list on that day.
This idea stems from the NBA PhD Program, which includes an array of classifications. I chose to just go with two lists for the WNBA — ‘Administration‘ and ‘General Studies‘. The former includes those that should be seen as some of the foremost authorities on the WNBA. The latter includes 100+ people covering the league in a variety of ways.
If you enjoy following and supporting the WNBA, my hope is that you’ll enjoy these lists as a resource to help you do so. If by chance I happened to miss someone or if you have any questions or feedback, please feel free to reach out to me directly on Twitter.
