At the beginning of training camp, most NBA teams hold Media Day, which is an opportunity for local media members to interview players and when players participate in photo shoots and promotional pieces for the upcoming season.

The Golden State Warriors held Tweedia Day, their version of Media Day, yesterday. Their use of the phrase Tweedia Day shows their use of various social media outlets during Media Day to connect to their fans and allow their fans to gain special access to this type of event.

I was lucky enough to be invited to attend Warriors Tweedia Day this year, after being named one of the most influential Warriors fans and participated in the Warriors’ #DubsConfidential event, which involved the unveiling of their new slate-colored alternate jerseys.

The Golden State Warriors are known as being one of the most creative and innovative franchises in the NBA. The Warriors don’t follow the “typical” or the “usual” model. They enjoy being different and trying out new methods, always with a goal for improvement and growth.

They’ve continued their creative trend by unveiling their new alternate jerseys in an unprecedented way. Instead of holding a press conference, writing a press release, and inviting the top local media members, the Warriors decided to let some of their most dedicated and influential fans unveil their new slate, sleeved alternate jerseys for them.
