Sabine and Social Media

Sabine is usually a reasonably regular Tweeter, I don't follow Facebook but presume her or one of her Team updates this also from time to time.

But with the recent 'controversy' on Twitter when she initially put her AO 2nd rd defeat to Niculescu down to the heat before having to add a later tweet crediting her opponent, could the result be less Bine on social media? She may come to a decision that it isn't worth the hassle and close her account, certainly on Twitter.

For me, it was all 'a storm in a teacup' and I'm certain Bine was just expressing her own disappointment. But of course her detractors will pounce on anything.

Re: Sabine and Social Media

Sabine rarely tweets or posts facebook these days, at least not compared to years gone by. She'd still want a presence on there because it's a tool to increase the fan base, which she has done significantly over the past year.

Re: Sabine and Social Media

Interesting what you've said Ian. Yeah I sure hope she doesn't stop tweeting after that happened! I love her tweets.
But at the same time, I agree with Mike. Sabine's tweeting rate has gone down compared to before. And she barely updates Facebook Often seems like team is doing most of the Facebook as messages are always hours or a day after the message she posts on twitter.
I hope she just ignores the trolls. Also I've noticed her tweets are also now more professional. Mostly related to her tennis(but what else would we expect from a tennis player). But you can expect that now since like this incident, people can criticize her for anything. Certainly with a larger following now. I guess she also likes to be private too so that can explain her less tweeting. At the same time she's really busy these days too.
But I just don't think she'll delete her twitter. Maybe less frequent posts but not delete.

Re: Sabine and Social Media

she should get off twitter imo, since the Wimbledon Final and her new BF, lots of people are only waiting for her to do a small mistake or whatever there to use it against her.

In general, less talking, more tennis would be a good thing atm.

Re: Sabine and Social Media

How a message of 140 characters can be blown so much out of proportion... She was clearly dissapointed after the match and probably send the tweet without thinking about it too much...but then the "damage" is already done... Well that's the disadvantage but also power of social media... She won't be off Twitter...it's a good way to keep in contact with her fanbase... But surely she'll be more careful in the future what to tweet and what not...

Re: Sabine and Social Media

Twitter isn't the only place she deletes stuff. Sabine had initially shared this photo from one of her sponsors at Facebook https://www.facebook.com/photo.php?f...type=1&theater But, she decided to un-share it hours later after people left negative messages about her R2 loss.

Re: Sabine and Social Media

Thats why i'd say it's best to drop this social media stuff. It's not even very interesting and not informative at all.

Fb isn't managed by herself most of the time, though.

Re: Sabine and Social Media

I used to pay attention to facebook and occasionally reply -- it was nice just knowing that she was reading my responses and maybe I gave her an ounce of inspiration. But Mike is right -- I'm not sure how much she even reads anymore and since Wimbledon, any response would get lost in the mountains of crap that gets posted. It's not like it used to be, but I guess that is to be expected whenever someone's name recognition goes up.

Her latest tweet addition/deletion shows that, while her "fans" can tweet and post anything no matter how outrageous in relative anonymity, her tweets will be parsed and analyzed and become fodder for the GM haters.
