There’s a great article Mashable released this morning about Linsanity and the world of social media. In the last week, Lin has added over 130k followers on Twitter and over 40k came after he introduced himself to Kobe Bryant. Every news outlet from People magazine to the Wall Street Journal has written about the new sensation and Ebay is getting filled up with bootleg Linsanity shirts and Lin rookie basketball cards. There’s countless threads going up in forums and hilarious pics being posted throughout the blogosphere.
Not to be outdone we followed through with our joke about Ballislin.com and put up a Jeremy Lin Social Media Portal. It has links to all the major Lin networks, news and even a YouTube playlist to go back to his Harvard days to his triple double in the D-League to his Mavs days of battling John Wall during the summer league to now which can only be explained as Linsane.
The following is a list of all the networks you need to be following to keep up with Linsanity.
