Sports Twitter In Vancouver Is Cutthroat

The Vancouver Canucks Twitter account was just doing its usual Wednesday fan-interaction/brand-optimization-through-social-media thing earlier today when the Whitecaps (MLS) account came over and took a big piss all over the place.

The Canucks tweeted a picture of the inside of the team's home, the Rogers Arena, as personnel worked with large, suspended speakers—perhaps in anticipation of the Great Big Sea concert tonight (Sabbath tomorrow!)—and asked followers if they ever wondered where the sound in the arena came from. It was an innocent behind-the-scenes look inside the arena It was also the perfect setup for the Whitecaps, who mimicked the tweet, appending an image of its fans enjoying a game at nearby BC Place.


Cute pic. Our fans are better. Next.
