The Lakers' impressive following on Facebook is matched by the number of followers of its Twitter account.

The official NBA Twitter page is followed by an impressive 26.49 million fans.

YouTube is a valuable way for NBA teams to connect with their fans, allowing them to post match highlights, exclusive interviews, and behind-the-scenes content. The Golden State Warriors lead the way on the video sharing platform, having amassed over 728 thousand subscribers. This is an impressive number considering the team in second place, Miami Heat, had just 132 thousand subscribers. However, NBA social media giants, the Los Angeles Lakers, do not openly publish their YouTube subscriber number so there is no telling how many viewers access their content. The YouTube channel of the Golden State Warriors gives fans access to exclusive news and game footage, as well as WGTV, dubbed the all-access pass for Warriors fans.
