Social media has become a huge part of the sports world. Players are no longer untouchable. In fact, players are so accessible that you can interact with them daily if they’re on Twitter. Luckily for Orange fans, most of the players on the men’s basketball team are on Twitter, some being more active than others.
So over the course of the season, College Spun will be taking a look at each player’s follower count. Which players are gaining and which are losing? Do some follower counts skyrocket after great performances? We’ll keep track of the stats and give you weekly analysis, including important follower counts and reasons for gain or loss.
