Intern Profile: Kristy Slater

Kristy Slater is a passionate sports fan who was invited to tweet for the Adelaide Strikers in the recent Big Bash League season. 

The self- confessed ‘cricket tragic’ gives an insight into her experience with the Strikers. 

With such a passion for the sport industry, in particular Cricket, it was an opportunity that I didn’t even think twice about.

photoFrom an early age, I remember playing sport at school, going to watch my brother and cousins in their chosen sports as well as going to local SANFL football matches before the Adelaide Crows came into the AFL competition where I would go with Dad when my uncle couldn’t.

You could say I lived and breathed sport from such an early age.

It was only late last year that I was on the way home from work where I have a private message sitting in my Twitter inbox asking if I would be interested (as well as others) tweeting the Summer away for the Adelaide Strikers in the Big Bash League.

Big Bash League Season 2012/13, (was) on its second year where eight teams in totally play for the shiny trophy and a spot in the Champions League and this year the Adelaide Strikers wanted to do something different when it came to Social Media. In fact, something that no other team has done.

A team of eight active Adelaide tweeters with an interest in Cricket got the chance to be a part of the “Twit Pit” and got to sit in the Press Box at the SACA at each home game.

This also gave our Adelaide Striker audience a chance to see what was happening behind the scenes which most people don’t get to see.

With Social Media more active than ever before, this saw the Adelaide Strikers Twitter and Facebook pages grow in numbers and many have participated in conversations with us by using specific twitter hashtags.

It was an experience that doesn’t come by often and when your name is put forward; you know you must be doing something right!

I look forward to participating in “Twit Pit” again for BBL|03, and who knows, you might be sitting right next to me, tweeting away.
