On the heels of Alabama and Georgia advancing to the College Football Playoff championship game with resounding victories over Cincinnati and Michigan on New Year’s Eve, Twitter and ESPN are partnering to bring the two finalists’ fan Tweets to life.
The social media platform and CFP broadcast network have asked fans to help them create the first-ever “Twitter Tribune,” a post-game newspaper comprised of supporter Tweets that will be distributed at Lucas Oil Stadium in Indianapolis for the National Championship on Monday, January 10.
The Twitter Tribune will mirror the trend of championship teams holding up local newspapers with title-winning headlines immediately after the game, but featuring fan Tweets instead.
In addition to being distributed at Lucas Oil Stadium, Twitter will send copies of the Tribune to those fans whose Tweets were included in the paper.
The top five most tweeted about teams this season (through December 9) include Alabama Crimson Tide, Ohio State Buckeyes, Michigan Wolverines, Oklahoma Sooners and BYU Cougars.
