Hoops fan earns dream job
Social media is a beautiful thing. Often times it's used inappropriately, but this story is pretty cool .The Philadelphia 76ers were looking for a new mascot, so two fans created fake Twitter handles to help promote the mascot choices.They were just helping out, not meaning any ill will. But then the guys received a "legally threatening email" telling them to stop, offering box seats and season tickets in exchange for control of the Twitter handles. But after the 76ers CEO looked at the situation a little closer and offered one of the guys a "full-time social media position with the team." It's amazing how stuff like that falls into some peoples laps.
