The actual reason Yakima started trending on Twitter was because high school basketball teams all over Washington qualified for State at the Yakima Valley SunDome and “Yakima” was getting a lot of mentions.

Yakima picked up even more traction when people noticed it trending and just asked, “Why?” But some people used Yakima’s 15 minutes of Twitter fame to show off the Valley.
