After not being able to watch last year's blitz in Gippsland, this is a step up and in the right direction.

However streaming on social channels is great for exposure, but diffcult to translate into a tangible RoI.

They signed a sponsor for the Blitz, maybe a condition of them signing up was this deal with Twitter. Exposure would be the main thing they are after though obviously.

Twitter will have viewer stats.

You don't have to have Twitter, you just have to go to the NBL's Twitter page. No login required.

I couldn't tell you the last time I went to the NBL website. Shitwoeful. Let alone go to a Twitter page because I have no interest in twitter.
If their www page was better for sure. Perhaps they should look into that.

If you're just going to refuse to go to the site it's available on, I find it difficult to see how that's the NBL's fault.

Bias against the right wing? What? Jack has been an alt-right poster boy for a long time now.

Sorry they say against the "conservatives" rather than right or left. Anyway he got exposed for bias in Congress. These social media platforms are a joke and doing the same things as old media.

Great, so now alt-right types can't watch NBL on Twitter due to bias which means Labor voters can't watch NBL on Foxtel due to Murdoch's world views. So the league only needs to sign a broadcast deal with enough media platforms to cover all the political ideologys out there according to some. Righty-o then.

Seriously... A lot of you go out of your way to find something to whinge about! The NBL are streaming something that previously hasn't been given much airtime and you're bitching and moaning because it isn't served up to you on a platter? Nobody is asking you buy shares in Twitter, just watch the damn games.

Love the nbl and the live stream, but I will never pay for anything where Murdoch gets any money out of it. Great to see it on Twitter.

The BLITZ has been streamed for around 10 years or so now. Again the NBL pumping something that isn't inventive, the broadcast via Twitter is the new thing.

FYI - blitz was NOT streamed last year. And possibly the year before.

I believe the last year the Blotz was streamed was when James Ennis was here

Lol... always finding something to fracking whinge about, Jesus...

My only concern is the watchability of the games... Not up on the technology enough to know if you can go back to the start of a live stream to watch from there if you miss the start, etc, but if the tech is solid and you don't need to log in, shouldn't be a problem, should it?

The Blitz was streamed every year from 2013 to 2016. Wasn't streamed last year and the NBL (rightly) copped a lot of flak for not doing it. Great they are doing it again, no matter the platform.

Yeah, and I don't love Twitter for deplatforming them conservatives. But should that stop you from watching a bloody game of basketball? What about Facebook and its data sharing? What about YouTube doing basically the same thing? A lot of you guys just reek of disgruntled small market team fans having a cry because the league isn't all about you anymore.

Perth will be without Brandt for blitz and NBA tour.
Jervis will step up to start and Kay will see minutes at 5 spot in smaller lineups.

Is deplatforming or de-platforming a thing?
Do we now ignore media outlets that don't conform to our own biases?

If yes, we now live in a world which we can solely view through the lens of confirmation bias.

George Orwell and Aldous Huxley feared that the future would be one in which a dominant power would enslave a population through control of a central message or ideology. Are they now wrong in that we now have a plurality of views but right in that each person becomes further indoctrinated by their own biased views filtering the information that gets to them?

Or am I reading too much into a Hoops thread?

Hey, UsTaHoop,

re: Or am I reading too much into a Hoops thread?

Just stick to Orwell & Huxley.

I recently read Neil Tyson-de Grasse's "Astrophysics for people in a hurry". Makes more sense than some of the theories found here (and believe me, I am no scientist!).
