Another win for sports and Twitter:
Golf pro Ben Crane turned to his Twitter following this week to crowdsource a replacement caddie at the HP Byron Nelson Championship Pro-Am in Texas.
Back in December, Twitter teamed up with ESPN and Ford to provide embedded replays from football games in posts sent via Twitter.
The replays, which each began with a short promotional clip for the Ford Fusion, were selected by ESPN’s college football editors and promoted by both ESPN and Ford to people not following Ford or ESPN on Twitter, but solid potential followers based on the people they follow and what they tweet about.
The partnership was evidently a success (in fact, ESPN said the video highlights were seen more than 7 million times), because Twitter and ESPN are amping up their joint efforts.
