Loose Thoughts and Observations

  • Duke basketball has more than 2.2 million followers on its verified men’s basketball account, which is astounding.
  • Several other blue blood programs — like UNC, Kansas and Kentucky — all have under one million followers. Indiana men’s basketball has over one million followers on Twitter. That’s a lot, obviously; however, it’s still less than half of Duke’s total.
  • Five ACC programs — Duke, UNC, Notre Dame, Virginia and Syracuse — have follower totals in the six figures.
  • North Carolina’s account has tweeted more than any of its intraconference peers — over 28,000 tweets.
  • Two other ACC programs, Duke and Miami, both have over 20,000 tweets, too. Florida State is very close to that benchmark as well.
