For San Diego State men’s basketball junior guard Jeremy Hemsley, Twitter is more than just a way to pass the time.
With 10.5 thousand followers and official Twitter verification, @Germ uses the social media platform to build a professional brand and shape a platform for his voice.
He said he has been consciously doing since high school.
“I remember when I first got a thousand followers I was really hyped about it,” Hemsley said. “But I guess as your name gets bigger in basketball, the more your name is out there on social media, so I just try to use that to my advantage to make sure people are seeing my face or seeing the things that I’m saying.”
