As I watch Odell Beckham get hundreds/thousands of favs and retweets every time he tweets ANYTHING, it makes me happy and sad. Happy that my favorite NFL player has developed a huge following on social media. And sad because I will never have that type of love from the social media masses despite basically living my entire life on Twitter these days. So I did a little experiment. I waited until ODB tweeted something out and then copied/pasted his tweet as my own. The results are above. Almost 1400 retweets and 1400 favs for Beckham against my 1 retweet and 5 favs. Odell just took me to Pound Town.
But in the words of everybody’s favorite mascot head wearer (Lee Corso), “NOT SO FAST MY FRIEND!”. As of the writing of this blog, Odell Beckham has 404,000 followers (Twitter lists it as 404K to estimate because that is A LOT OF GOD DAMN PEOPLE. I am jealous of everyone that has a K in their follower count). I have 3,060 followers (and I love literally each and every one of them. Especially the bots and Twitter Instagram hoes that just look for follow backs). So by my math:
1 in every 290 of ODB’s followers retweeted his tweet, while 1 in every 295 of his followers favorited his tweet.
1 in every 3,060 of my followers retweeted my tweet, while 1 in every 612 of my followers favorited my tweet.
Looks like I lost again….
Odell Beckham tweeted out his tweet 39 seconds before I did. So I still have time to make up the difference.
Who Tweeted It Better Verdict: Too close to call
