Adam Silver has a secret Twitter account to follow all of our NBA tweets

One of the more enjoyable parts about watching an NBA game -- especially in the Finals -- is following along on Twitter dot com, as people discuss the game and make jokes. Apparently, NBA commissioner Adam Silver agrees. 

In an interview on Friday with ESPN's Arash Markazi, Silver spilled the beans on having a secret Twitter account that he uses to follow along with the rest of us. 

Silver's full answer to the question of whether or not he has an account:

"First, yes, I follow social media, I have an account on all the different platforms. I don't choose to tweet, other than on the official NBA account, so I also have an account just to follow what's going on. I don't feel it's such a secret. I don't think there's much of an expectation of privacy for people on social media."

Okay, first of all, this rules. Also, we absolutely need someone to get to the bottom of this and figure out Silver's account. Whoever solves this mystery will be a true hero. 


Jason Gay of the Wall Street Journal originally got this scoop a few years back in an interview with Silver. Make sure to check out his story as well.
