Ball State Athletics has a new official Twitter handle. The department made the change Monday from @bsuathletics to @BallStateSports.
The move is part of the athletic department’s continued effort to improve the social media experience for fans. Throughout the past year, many of the Cardinals’ team-specific handles have changed so all now follow the same format: @BallState(team name or abbreviation).
Ball State recently received the right from Twitter to take ownership of @BallStateSports, aligning the department handle with those of the school’s 19 teams. It also better aligns the athletics department with the main university Twitter account, @BallState, and the alumni handle, @BallStateAlumni.
Fans who were previously following @bsuathletics are already following the new account. No new follow is necessary.
All Ball State Athletics social media channels are now uniform with our website, www.ballstatesports.com. You can like Ball State Sports on Facebook (Ball State Sports), follow the department on Twitter (@BallStateSports) and connect on Instagram (BallStateSports).
