During sporting events, team Twitter accounts will send live updates and highlights throughout the game.
However, that won’t be the case for the San Jose Sharks on Saturday night.
The team is hosting Pride Night at the SAP Center against the New York Islanders, but those in attendance won’t be the only ones attending their celebration.

The Sharks tweeted on Saturday that they will “offer information and facts on LGBTQIA+ topics” instead of “our normal game content” throughout Saturday’s contest.
“Our hope is that this content will serve as a reminder that there are more important issues than goals, highlights and wins,” the team said in their tweet.
“Hockey is not for everyone until everyone is comfortable playing, working or being a fan of this amazing game.”
The NHL has come under fire in recent months as two teams and one individual player refrained from wearing Pride-themed jerseys during warm-ups.
The Philadelphia Flyers’ Ivan Provorov cited his Russian Orthodox religion as his reason for not participating in warm-ups on his team’s Pride Night. The rest of the team wore LGBTQ-themed uniforms.
The New York Rangers promoted their Pride Night in January, saying players would wrap pride-themed duct tape on sticks, but that plan was also canceled without explanation. The same thing happened with the Minnesota Wild earlier this month.
