AKQA Creatives Use Twitter to Console Injured SF Giants Catcher

A few folks at AKQA felt bad for San Francisco Giants catcher Buster Posey, whose season came to an end after a gruesome home plate collision back in May, so they decided to send their hometown hero some well-wishes. And since there’s no better way to show compassion than creating a Twitter profile, @Poseyscast was set up right after the player’s foot injury occurred and since its launch, has lured hundreds of people to “sign his cast” via tweet. The case study above explains it all and the end result of this effort was a physical card featuring the five best tweets that was mailed to Posey himself. Hope it helped somewhat.
