When folks in jet packs someday look back at sports coverage in the early part of the 21st century, they will likely view the age as being defined by two things: the boom in social media and a growing love of lists. If we aren’t tweeting or Facebooking, we’re reading lists. Or tweeting our own lists.
So what could be better than a list about tweeting… that in turn was itself promoted on Twitter?
SportingNews.com has published a list today ranking the SEC’s head basketball coaches according to their tweeting abilities. Who tweets the most? How many folks do they follow? How many people are following them? What kinds of tweets do they send out?
Sorry, but we don’t care.
For those who do, you can read the whys and how-comes of the list right here. And for those who just want to see another list, here’s how that site ranks the SEC’s hoops coaches as Twitterers. Or should that be tweeters?
1. John Calipari, Kentucky
2. Frank Martin, South Carolina
3. Rick Ray, Mississippi State
4. Cuonzo Martin, Tennessee
5. Billy Donovan, Florida
6. Mark Fox, Georgia
7. Tony Barbee, Auburn
8. Mike Anderson, Arkansas
9. Billy Kennedy, Texas A&M
10. Frank Haith, Missouri
11. Johnny Jones, LSU
Alabama’s Anthony Grant, Ole Miss’ Andy Kennedy, and Vandy’s Kevin Stallings all tied for worst Twitterers in the Southeastern Conference. Better fire ‘em.
