Twitter has revolutionized the way fans interact with major sports and it turns out only the mighty NFL was more popular on social media in the past year than Florida State's third national championship this past January.
According to Nielsen, the 2014 BCS National Championship game featuring FSU and Auburn generated a reported 4,392,000 tweets and boasted an audience of 10,404,000.
In that same time span, only the NFL's Super Bowl and AFC and NFC Championship games established a larger Twitter audience but 'Noles versus Tigers still had more tweets than those two conference title games.
Why is all this important beyond the fact that so many people interacted socially during an event that featured the Seminoles? Because it shows the power of Twitter and why the FSU athletics department takes this medium so seriously when it comes to highlighting the Seminoles.
All news, notes, pictures and videos about the FSU football team is shared from the program's official account at @FSU_Football to nearly 100,000 followers. So be sure to follow today and utilize the hashtag #Noles to interact with the reigning kings of college football.
