Newly crowned Wimbledon champ Andy Murray has never been a stickler for social media. He's flirted with the technology occassionally, but never really embraced Twitter or Facebook. But something has changed for the Scot. Perhaps it is that the constant barrage of criticism he faced has come to an abrupt halt after his Wimbledon victory. Or maybe he's just feeling all warm and snuggly towards his loyal fans. Regardless, we are LOVING the new social media savvy Andy Murray.
Following his victory over Novak Djokovic in the Wimbledon final, Murray hosted his second Facebook Q&A. Judging by the 1.3 million likes he now has, that went pretty well. Murray also decided to join Instagram and posted some behind the scenes videos and a thank you message to his fans. Murray has also been enjoying Twitter recently, and did a mini Q&A on that platform just one day after his Wimbledon triumph.
