Welcome to your weekly Redskins Social Media Spotlight, where we highlight the trendy topics and social media campaigns going on this week in Redskins Nation. Check it out and make suggestions below.
Last week’s Social Media Weekly Spotlight dived into the Combine, including some of the responses that Redskins players had in regards to the results, as well as WR Pierre Garçon’s plea to LB London Fletcher to play one more year. We still do not know the answer to the latter (hopefully, we’ll have more information by the end of this week).
In fact, at this point in the decision process, all we have to fall back on is the interview with Redskins.com that the saavy vet had following the season. While some may be inclined to sit back and wonder what if, trying to envision the future with or without the middle linebacker, we will not. You may ask, why? Well, because life must go on for the time being.
So without further ado, we bring you another installment of your weekly Redskins Social Media Spotlight, consisting of Niles Paul’s Harlem Shake, Joshua Morgan’s inspiring picture, Chris Baker’s plea for 10k Twitter followers, and more!
If you haven’t noticed lately, there have been quite a bit of Harlem Shake videos surfacing the web, at a furious rate. In an attempt to try and keep pace, and since most Redskins players are back at home training and resting for their return to Ashburn, Va. in May, we scoured the internet to find a Harlem Shake that has a little Redskins flavor.
Here’s a tweet from Redskins TE Niles Paul from his old teammates performing a Harlem Shake video during spring practice.
For more from Niles, follow him on Twitter @Niles_Paul84. In the meantime, stay tuned and we’ll try to get our creative juices flowing in order to bring you a Redskins version of this phenomenon!
NT Chris Baker is known among his teammates for bringing the “swag” and he certainly has a magnetic personality that draws attention from those around him. But he needs your help, Redskins fans!
He needs more Twitter followers in his quest to 10,000. Baker’s account currently stands at 9,258 and, over the weekend, he went public to help him reach his goal.
There it is, help #swaggy get to 10k and follow him on Twitter @cbaker92redskin. You won’t regret the decision!
It’s a pretty well-known fact that WR Joshua Morgan has a deep-rooted appreciation for Washington D.C. that dates back to his childhood. Though this is no surprise, oftentimes it’s nice for us to reflect on Morgan’s success story and, for Morgan, it’s a chance for him to look in the mirror and keep driving, keep striving, to make a greater impact on the field and in the community that he knows so dearly.
Earlier this week he Instagrammed this pretty cool picture, followed by a quote, about what this city means to him. Check it out!
“I’m a rare breed and it’s because of where I’m from what my city does to you and the talent it produces not many built like us … STILL I GRIND , Love my city … There’s nothing like it … #dcornothing #httr #wizards #caps #nats #dcunited #SE”
Last but not least, remember earlier this season when QB Kirk Cousins felt the need to apologize for his new haircut? He labeled it as a ‘communication breakdown’ between him and a local Dulles barber. Well, no more, because according to his Twitter account he’s now sporting a new look.
Got a haircut today, my first since the "Dulles Barber Debacle". Now I can officially move on.—
Kirk Cousins (@KirkCousins8) March 03, 2013
On behalf of Redskins Nation, we’re happy that Kirk was able to correct the mistake because we all know that it boils down to a simple haircut gone wrong #simplethings #misfortunes. You can follow the quarterback on Twitter @KirkCousins8.
