Each month, we take a look back at the month that was in online sports marketing and share eight of the most tweetable stories. This month, we’re excited to provide a new format that allows you to retweet, respond to, favorite, or follow the tweet’s author, right here on this page! Don’t agree with our top 8? Help us out next month by nominating your own OSM Tweets for a chance to be featured on our site.
Without further ado, here’s our top 8 from the month of January in chronological order….
