The Orioles kicked off the holiday season by thanking fans via Twitter.

Over the course of about three hours, the O’s gave away game tickets, autographs, t-shirts, statues, hats, bobbleheads… and just about anything else the Orioles had in overstock. Some highlights of the 25 give-away tweets include:

It’s easy to be cynical these days, but kudos to the Birds for taking a little time to make people’s day, and connect with fans. It was nice to see the team give thanks via Twitter, and find a way to engage fans through what is proving to be a quiet off season. The gesture was small and simple, but for O’s fans, it set the right tone heading into Thanksgiving.

From all of us here at BSR, we hope you enjoyed the first O’s Tweetsgiving!
