The first week of the season has come to an end and the Orange have started off 2-0. But has success on the court translated to success on Twitter? Only one of the two games was nationally televised and no player did anything to garner too much attention, so I didn’t expect huge follower gains, but most got a respectable jump.

After publishing the introduction to the social media piece last week, Brandon Triche tweeted at me saying that he thought he had more followers. He also said that he hopes to get to 27,000 by the end of the season. It’s going to take bigger gains than this to hit that mark. Triche had a huge game against Wagner, but unfortunately for him, the game wasn’t nationally televised. The further into the season we get, the more exposure the players receive.

All the photos being tweeted from player accounts from the Midway were awesome, but none of them were as cool as these cupcakes:
