NBA fans who want to get their favorite player into this season’s All-Star game will for the first time be able to cast votes through Twitter and Facebook, the league announced Tuesday. Here’s how it works on Twitter: simply tweet the player’s first and last names with the #NBABALLOT hashtag. Fans’ tweeted votes are limited to one player per day from now through Jan. 14, when All-Star voting concludes (the game itself is Feb. 17). Meanwhile, a custom app on the NBA’s official Facebook page allows fans to vote for five starters once per day there. Read the full story at Mashable.
