The WNBA announced on Wednesday afternoon that three of the planned 20 games to be live streamed on Twitter this season will feature the Liberty.
This will be the second straight season that Twitter will provide live game coverage of the WNBA.
The Twitter coverage begins on May 20 with four games, including the Liberty’s season opener in Chicago against the Sky at 7 p.m. Other live games on Twitter featuring the Liberty include June 5 against Diana Taurasi and the Phoenix Mercury at 11 a.m. at Madison Square Garden and on July 17 in Dallas against the Wings at 1 p.m. The June 5 game against the Mercury is one of two Liberty home games to be played at Madison Square Garden this season.
