LAS VEGAS (AP) — Las Vegas city officials are embracing Stanley Cup fever by refusing to use capital letters on the city’s official Twitter account in a playful shot at the Vegas Golden Knights’ opponent: the Washington Capitals.
The city posted a photo-shopped version of the famous Las Vegas sign with all lowercase letters on Friday and the message: “we’re serious about (hash)nocaps! (hash)goknightsgo.” Since then, the city has been Tweeting in all lowercase letters. MGM resorts also joined the push on its Twitter account.READ MORE: Forward Progress Stopped In Nelson, Sandra Fires In Butte County
