Today marks the one year anniversary of the tragic Boston Marathon bombing that killed three and injured 264 runners and spectators. To honor the victims, survivors, and heroes, all five of the region’s professional sports teams tweeted the same exact tweet, at the same exact time. At 10:00 am, the Red Sox, Celtics, Bruins, Patriots and Revolution (New England’s professional soccer team) posted the same image with the same caption. The image features the hashtag #BostonStrong, the blue-and-yellow Boston Strong ribbon and all the team logos. The tweets read, “We’re all on the same team. #BostonStrong.” The teams themselves took the initiative to organize the joint Twitter tribute. They hoped to show their appreciation and support for the city that always supports them.
