Stephen Curry uses Twitter after saying he deleted social media from his phone
Wanting to focus on the Warriors‘ pursuit of winning another championship, Stephen Curry took a page from LeBron James and decided to go dark on social media for the extent of the postseason. Or did he?
Right before the start of Game 2 in Golden State’s first-round series against the Portland Trail Blazers, Curry tweeted “Lock in!” This is a message he usually shares on Twitter before games.
Lock in! #DubNation

So was Curry lying about going off social media for the playoffs? Well, not exactly.
Curry may have stretched the definition of going dark on social media though because as he told ESPN’s Chris Haynes, he still may post to his different social media accounts but won’t be reading messages or checking out his timeline.
“I have a way of sending out messages without getting into my accounts,” Curry revealed. “That way, I’m not seeing or reading something I’m trying to avoid.”
So Curry will be using social media throughout the playoffs but is just not really going to be an active participant online. And while it is a bit strange that Curry can’t completely stay off social media, in reality, it likely won’t make that much of a difference on how he plays throughout the playoffs.
