Spanning the Twitterverse to bring you the constant variety of tweets…the thrill of the retweet…and the agony of the unfollow…the human drama of the twitter timeline..This is CadChica’s Wide World of Tworts
What began as a simple challenge last Monday, turned into a free-for-all throughout the week. The follower challenge between Teal Bunbury of Sporting KC and Juan Agudelo of the New York Red Bulls. The most influential athlete on Twitter, Chad Ochocinco (aka Chad Johnson), led the way in helping Teal to gain followers. To remind everyone, here were the early totals on Monday:
@TealBunB: 5129 followers @ 12:30 / 6971 followers as of 6:28pm
@juanagudelo17: 5184 @ 12:30 / 6739 followers as of 6:30pm
As of post-time, here are the ‘happy totals’:
@TealBunB: 10,091 followers tonight
@juanagudelo17: 9,600 followers tonight
Me thinks young Mr. Agudelo will be looking like this soon eh?
When the NFL draft started the other day, when we still had the NFL that is, I posted about many of the potential 1st & 2nd round draft picks with their Twitter handles & follower numbers. One of the names listed was former Alabama running back and Heisman trophy winner, Mark Ingram. Without looking at all of the Twitter accounts, mostly because I’m too lazy on a Saturday night, I am calling him the big winner for Twitter follower gains. Here’s the lowdown:
@Mark_Ingram22: 21,539 followers Thursday morning / 36,981 tonight
That’s a gain of over 15,000 in just a few days. Must be lots of New Orleans fans out there or he gained new ones because of waiting for so long to be picked. Either way, I wish him the best.

The new NFL world order, as of today:
In Courtroom/lockout football, Mr. Irrelevant may be the last relevant piece of business in the NFL for a while.—
