Now Accepting Applications For #MUBB Tweet Team

Oct. 25, 2010

MILWAUKEE -- Marquette Athletics invites its most social media-savvy season ticket holders to apply to be a part of its all new #mubb Tweet Team, a recognized band of Twitter users who will be asked to share with the Twitterverse their gameday experiences at the Bradley Center.

We want to recruit men's basketball season ticket holders who are also our most enthusiastic Twitter followers -- tweeps who can bring to life the electric atmosphere inside the arena, describe the camaraderie between fellow Blue & Gold supporters, or illustrate the high-flying action of the Golden Eagles in 140 characters or less.

IN RETURN, your Twitter username, and other members of #mubb Tweet Team, will be promoted by Marquette Athletics throughout the men's basketball season and will be officially recognized on, in addition to other incentives and exclusive access throughout the year.

TO APPLY, send a single tweet to @muathletics explaining why you should be chosen for the #mubb Tweet Team.

@muathletics I am always 1st in line at the BC & haven't missed a game since '02! I luv #mubb and would a great addition to the Tweet Team!Tue Oct 25 04:49:11 via Twitter



Subsequent tweets using the #mubb hashtag can help bolster your application, as we're looking for the most engaged, creative and influential Marquette basketball fans to be a part of this exclusive group.

DEADLINE TO SUBMIT your application to @muathletics is noon CT on Friday, Oct. 29. Additional #mubb tweets you send by the deadline will also be considered during the selection process.

Only season ticket holders with the best overall applications and most-active Twitter profiles will be selected.

- You must be a season ticket holder, including student season ticket holders, (or plan to attend virtually every home game) to be considered. Your ticket status will be verified during the selection process.

- You must have an active Twitter account and be able to tweet from your seat at Bradley Center via a personal mobile device (i.e., cell phone).

- Selected #mubb Tweet Team members should plan to meet with the Marquette marketing staff on the Bradley Center floor, prior to MU's first regular season home game, Nov. 12 vs. Prairie View A&M, where those selected will be introduced to their teammates.

QUESTIONS? Tweet your question to, or direct message, @muathletics.
