Love Is In The Air On Twitter

The other night on Twitter, I stumbled upon an interesting conversation between Chad OchoCinco and Larry Fitzgerald. Basically, OchoCinco, one of the most followed athletes on Twitter, was politely asked by Fitzgerald for a little shout out to help get his own follow count up.

Fitz: @OGOchoCinco hey mr-i have a quarter million followers, can i get a shout out every now & than from u 2 get my following up geeez? Lol

Prior to last night, Fitzgerald had a humble 91,000+. *Note: Fitz’s tweet might be a little unclear. He’s not saying that he has a quarter million followers; he’s calling OchoCinco Mr. “I Have a Quarter Million Followers.”

OchoCinco replied with…and get ready for it:

OC: all my followers follow the best reciever in the game, my homeboy @Lfitzgerald11

I know, right? He was later @replied with a bunch of his followers saying “Whoa! OchoCinco actually said someone was better than him!” to which the outspoken player then tweeted back:

OC: Yeah Larry Fitzgerald is better than me, he’s done something I’ve yet to accomplish! He took his team to the playoffs and super bowl!!!!!

And the lovefest continued…

Fitz: Thanks @OGOchoCinco i dont know about the best man,im just tryin 2 keep gettin better.but ill take the extra followers.mcdonalds on me lol!

OC: @Lfitzgerald11 bruh you know how greatness is measured in this league, numbers, wins and rings, I only got one of the three and that’s #’s

Fitz: @OGOchoCinco thanks man thats a big statement from some1 wit as much talent as u have

I got a kick out of following this conversation, not only because it’s fascinating to read the rapport between players, but also because of the responses from their followers including tweets like “Fitzgerald and OchoCinco got a Bromance,” “Are you guys going to kiss now?” and “You guys need to get a room.”

All in all, Fitzgerald’s attempts to get his count up worked. He now has over 98,000 followers.

Oh, the wonders of Twitter…
