Twitter Trivia

Check out our Pirates Trivia on Twitter.

On various nights throughout the offseason, we’ll bring back our ‘Twitter Trivia’ segments, which we started last winter when we were The View From Section 134 (#134PiratesTrivia). Here is the layout:

  1. We will tweet a Pirates-related trivia question.
  2. Tweet us your response.
  3. We will publish a post that reveals the correct answer, as well as the winners.
  4. We’ll also send out a tweet that recognizes the victors.
  5. Finally, the question, answer, and winners will all be posted here on our Twitter Trivia page.

It’s an easy process and fun way to get your Pirates fix. Questions will vary in difficulty, and hints will be given if needed. Prize is bragging rights. Good luck to everyone.
