Hey there.

It has occurred to us that while we made mention of this on Twitter, we never used this format to thoroughly explain the #PPLive hashtag we use on Twitter. This is a good time to do so, right?

During games, Padres fans engage in some great conversation on Twitter. There’s some grousing, there’s some faith keeping, and there’s a whole lot of funny shit going on. Most of us participate, and we wanted a way for our readers to follow the conversation. During Spring Training, we introduced the #PPLive hashtag for use during games. It’s not just for us, though. We invite you to join in the conversation using #PPLive during Padres games, create a bigger conversation, and discover some of the great follows on Padres Twitter.

As a side note, we may conduct some contests/giveaways via #PPLive in the future. So, stay tuned for that!
