Hawks, Timberwolves trade jabs through Spotify playlists

Tuesday February 10th, 2015

The Atlanta Hawks have been on their Twitter game lately, and other NBA twitter accounts have started taking notice.

On Monday morning, the Minnesota Timberwolves tweeted a Spotify playlist at the Hawks' Twitter account with a message for Monday night's game between the teams.

The message read:

"Oh Atlanta, everybody wants to rule the world but, honestly, you will see we are born to run no matter what happens. We love you and always will. Regardless we got to get four on the floor. Our time is coming and the Wolves won't back down. Sincerely, The Wolfpack."

The Hawks won, 117 to 105, and replied with a playlist of their own.

The Hawks started the Spotify playlist trend last week, when they thanked their fans after the team snapped its 19-game win steak.

On Sunday night, the Memphis Grizzlies beat the Hawks, and the team celebrated  by taking a shot at the Hawks' recent trend of adding a W to the team name for each win in January.

The Hawks play the Boston Celtics next, so hopefully their social media department is up for the challenge.
