Portland Trail Blazers guard CJ McCollum is very active Twitter, often sharing his thoughts on topics from TV shows to recruiting stars like Joel Embiid. McCollum is part of the section of Twitter that is dedicated to basketball, whether that be discussing games or making jokes about burner accounts. Being such an active personality, McCollum makes a perfect fit to explain what the community means to him:

“It allows you to interact with fans,” McCollum said — he is known for his regular conversations with followers, both positive and negative.

Besides interactions, Basketball Twitter is also known for breaking news. ”A lot of different journalists out there who bring the real-time information,” McCollum said.

Others featured in the video include Blake Griffin, Ben Simmons, and Rachel Nichols.
