Houston Texans running back Arian Foster is one of the best and most entertaining athletes to follow on Twitter. Besides being one of the few athletes to actually say interesting and funny things from time to time, Foster speaks out on relevant topics and engages with followers.
Tuesday, he took that engagement to a new level when he promised to hand out tickets to anyone who could discover his first tweet. One follower, @RJhegedus, was able to find Foster's first tweet, "Walking into the Twitter house for the first time. Hello digital world..."
It's amazing how no matter who we are, our first tweets are all pretty much the same.
What makes this social media story even better is the help RJ got from Twitter heroine Jenny Johnson (the writer who took down disgrace to humanity Chris Brown) to help bring it to Foster's attention. Eventually, Foster did get in touch with his follower and looks set to make good on his promise. Foster even gave a second set of tickets to another follower who claimed to have found the first tweet as well. Only on Twitter could something like this happen.
