Yao Ming Must Have The Most Worthless Twitter Ever

New, 1 comment

Sports Business Radio has discovered that, in social media terms, Yao Ming is not very popular.

How does @YaoMing only have 31,000 Twitter followers when he's one of the most popular figures in a country with 6 billion people?

How does Yao Ming not have more followers? Kenny Powers has 130,000.

I can think of a few reasons, actually:

↵

1. Yao tweets about twice a month. SO ENGAGING.

↵

2. He's probably the single most boring tweeter of all time. True story.

I'm running on a real treadmill 20-30 minutes each time. I don't need the Alter-G treadmill any more.

Thanks, Yao. I actually liked the Alter-G, but suit yourself.

3. He's only following four people: Playmaker Mobile, The NBA's Twitter account, the Rockets' account and Steve Nash. At least follow your own point guard, man.
