Miami Heat's Chris Bosh to thank fans via Twitter event


Chris Bosh and Team Bosh of the NBA’s Miami Heat are showing appreciation for fans and their support for his NBA All-Star Team run with an international Twitter event on Thursday, Jan. 16 at 7p.m. ET.

A first of its kind Twitter event for the forward/center, the event will be exclusively hosted by @ChrisBosh and will focus on fan FAQs which have been in high demand this season thanks to Chris’ game winning plays and his “Player Of The Week” accomplishment last month.

“I am incredibly thankful to have the support of all my fans and want to show my appreciation by having some fun with them,” said Bosh. “The Twitter event on January 16 will be a great opportunity for me to engage with my fans from around the world and respond in real time. I love new technology and found it intriguing to build out a section of my (web) site for fans to experience the event on an interactive page – especially one that eliminates the language barrier.”

On the day of the event, a portion of www.chrisbosh.com will be transformed into a totally interactive experience. Powered by the technology tool Yappn, the chat will allow Bosh’s multi-lingual fans to easily view the conversation in nearly 70 languages, regardless of the tweet’s original language. Fans can also follow the chat with #BoshQandA.
