Celtics Tweets of the Month: August
BOSTON – August is typically a slow month for the Boston Celtics, seeing as many of the players are off enjoying their last full month of freedom before the season begins. The players' absence from the practice facility, however, doesn’t mean they aren’t keeping busy.
Twitter gives us a look into these players’ lives that simply didn’t exist a decade ago. We can track what all of them have been doing this month simply by clicking a button.
We did exactly that by pulling the top tweets of the month from all of our Celtics players. We placed them in one central location – this page – to give you a look at what the C’s have been up to in August and what’s been on their mind. Check out the tweets below from 12 of the team's 16 players.
