The Suns' top overall draft pick is relatively new to Twitter judging by his 40 total tweets, but he's been tweeting up a storm since the commissioner called his name. Here's Alex chronicling his first couple days as a Sun:
Hello Phoenix! #GoSuns — Alex Len (@alexlen) June 28, 2013
He seems to be a fan of the #GoSuns hashtag. I like that one too.
I didn't catch this on draft night, but apparently he had a Ukrainian flag sewed on the inside of his suit. That's pretty awesome.
Apparently not all bridges have been burned with Thunder Dan.
S/O to @DanMajerle, thanks for taking care of us tonight!— Alex Len (@alexlen) July 1, 2013
Just based on these few tweets, I get the impression that Archie's a hard worker and is excited to be a Sun.
Time to start this journey to the top. All the doubters about to see me in action— Archie Goodwin (@A1Laflare10) June 28, 2013

Didn't get much sleep want to thank the @Suns for the opportunity.. Thank you all for the support!!— Alex Oriakhi (@aoriakhi42) June 28, 2013
Another hard worker.
Spoke to Alex Oriaki around 2pm today "I'm on my way to the gym to workout the grind don't stop" he gets it congrats @aoriakhi42— HoopDreamsMag.com (@HoopDreamsmag) June 28, 2013
He and Summer Suns invitee and Iowa State graduate Chris Babb apparently are bros. The chemistry should be great in Vegas sine a lot of these guys either know or have played together before.
@ChrisBabbII lets get it— Alex Oriakhi (@aoriakhi42) June 28, 2013
This last one is for a certain Nigerian reader here on Bright Side. You know who you are (Rex).
Obviously the Suns' two serial tweeters were going to weigh in on the draft as well.
Kendall was obviously following along as the picks were being announced and welcomed each of the guys as they were drafted.
Welcome to PHX @alexlen! congrats— Kendall Marshall (@KButter5) June 28, 2013
Welcome to PHX @A1Laflare10!— Kendall Marshall (@KButter5) June 28, 2013
AO! @aoriakhi42 welcome to PHX— Kendall Marshall (@KButter5) June 28, 2013
Goran Dragic and P.J. Tucker were active on draft night as well.
Apparently Tucker is buddies with Dez Wells, a Maryland guard and teammate of Len. It looks like Wells was talking his boy up to Tucker before the draft.
The official @Suns account has put out plenty of great stuff as well over the weekend, so be sure to check that out.
On behalf of the entire Bright Side staff, welcome to the Suns Alex, Archie and Alex!
