Miami Dolphins Are Twitter Champions


If there was a Twitter Super Bowl, the Miami Dolphins would be heavily favored to be the 2012 champions.  The signing of Chad OchoCinco, the Twitter MVP, plays a huge part in that.  The reborn Chad Johnson (@ochocinco) currently has 3,549,908 followers, the most for any NFL player.  Only one other American football player has more than 2 million followers and that is Reggie Bush (@reggie_bush) with 2,488,511.  Dolphin domination!

The San Francisco-based social networking service known as Twitter has been around since July 15, 2006 and generates more than 300 million tweets daily.  Tweets are posts with a limit of 140 characters.  I recently joined the micro-blogging community and an army followed me.  I currently boast nine followers.

After Chad Johnson and Reggie Bush, we have:

Tim Tebow @TimTebow  1,692,861

Michael Vick @MikeVick  1,342,803

Larry Fitzgerald @LarryFitzgerald  1,294,132

Terrell Owens @terrellowens  1,234,079

Drew Brees @drewbrees  1,185,455

We’ll give Owens the benefit of the doubt.  As far as current Miami Dolphins, this is what we have after the big two.
