Is your mom on Twitter? If not, I’d say at this point there’s a 25% chance at this point she never will be. However, if she is, there’s at least a 25% percent chance she’s following Chad Ochocinco. I just took a quick gander at Chad’s recently added Twitter followers, and it’s a litany of could be middle aged moms. Thanks, Viacom.
I was interested in hearing about some new athletes out there worth following who, despite showing promise on Twitter, remain obscure, non-mainstream, questionably professional or – best yet – all of the above. I asked a group of my sports blogging constituents to contribute to a quick poll: Who’s the most fringe athlete that you follow? The list is good to the point that it inspired me to go the extra mile and create Fringe Athletes on Twitter Lists*.
