The Golden State Warriors announced Wednesday that San Francisco Giants closer Sergio Romo will take over the team’s official Twitter account for the second quarter of Thursday night’s game against the Los Angeles Clippers.

The nationally televised game featured a pair of Western Conference playoff contenders and, after some bad blood on Christmas night, there will be some additional interest.
The team said Romo will offer his perspective on the game as well as interact with fans on @warriors.
San Francisco 49ers left tackle Joe Staley participated during the preseason as the Warriors will host a player from each of the major professional sports teams in the Bay Area, including the Oakland Athletics and Raiders, the Giants and 49ers and San Jose Sharks.
The promotional crossovers have worked both ways. In August, Warrior forward Andre Iguodala and supermodel and actress Marisa Miller took over the 49ers official Twitter account during a Sunday Night Football game against the Minnesota Vikings during the preseason.
