It has become a popular activity for professional athletes to tweet during games from the locker room. This has created mini-communities of fans of both teams and players. But recently the NFL has banned players from Tweeting during games on the sideline. Chad OchoCinco of the Bengals has announced that he has found a loophole and he plans on flying one luck twitter follower to each of his games and that fan's job it seems, will be to keep his eyes on Chad who will use a series of hand signals to pass on the message that the fan will tweet on his behalf. Brilliant publicity stunt that could work out well for Chad, the Bengals and even the NFL.
Would you consider some audacious act like this if it could bring you a lot of attention and followers? What if there was a 50-50 chance it could blow up in your face?
For the record, I would.
