Lane Kiffin Goes On UT Twitter-Following Spree

Lane Kiffin-1-3

File this one as one of the weirdest stories of the college football offseason.

Former Tennessee head coach and current Alabama offensive coordinator Lane Kiffin went on a Twitter following spree of a bunch of UT-related accounts recently.

We don’t have the exact time and date, but when you look at Kiffin’s most recent follows on Twitter, there are a ton of UT players and (not shown) official accounts from the school that he followed consecutively:

Your guess is as good as ours on this one.

*Update: He unfollowed all of them on Wednesday morning, making the whole situation even weirder

  1. I don’t think it’s a mystery. My guess is Alabama is using analytics software to map relationships using the twitter API’s. Meaning, he follows a player, then all that player’s followers and who they are following can be mapped, and so forth. It’s a smart way to look at deep relationships… it’s all about recruiting and this is most likely the latest attempt to use technology to assist in that process. Go Vols.
