NBA Finals: Heat winning Twitter battle
It's a long series; with the Miami Heat and Oklahoma City Thunder knotted at 1-1, you don't need us to tell you that.
But one area the Heat clearly are dominating: Twitter. As shown in these simple graphs, created with information provided to Playbook by the website Kred.com, the mentions race vastly has tilted in the Heat's favor during Games 1 and 2.
However, it's not all Heat all the time on social media. Kred numbers also show that the most-retweeted messages are decidedly pro-Thunder.
Will these trends continue? We'll see ...
All numbers approximate.
