"A lot of places are using social media to bridge the gap between fans and the team," Missouri women's basketball spokesperson Keith Soder said. "It's a great way for the team to interact with fans."
Soder said the athletics department is increasing use of social media for the women's basketball team, focusing on connecting with fans through the team's official Twitter and Facebook accounts.
"We like to keep it more on the main page where we can have some control over it," Soder said.
