New to THON: @THONcrowdFTK
Staying active on social media while also in attendance at the Bryce Jordan Center is a large component of THON 2013, and a new Twitter account is taken full advantage of the obsession.
New to THON this year, the Twitter account @THONcrowdFTK describes itself as “your source on what’s going on in the stands THON weekend.”
More importantly, all Twitter users can tweet at the account — using the hashtag #THONshoutouts2013 with messages to dancers that could end up on the big screen.
A few samples of tweets so far can be found below:
— Victoria (@torinadooo) February 15, 2013
— Jessica Linder (@jess_linder) February 15, 2013
— Briana Maiden (@bribrimaiden) February 15, 2013
Since it is relatively new, the account currently sits at 441 followers but should pick up more throughout the weekend.
Whether people are merely feet away from their dancing friends on the floor or all the way across the world, words of encouragement can be sent and seen by many, and everyone knows the dancers could use it as the hours go on and fatigue potentially creeps in.
