Think sports are tough? How about Twitter?
Chancellor Linda P. Brady and men's basketball Coach Mike Dement have a friendly little competition going who can get the most new Twitter followers by Feb. 8. The stakes? A free lunch.
In an email, Brady told Dement: I'm game.
On Dement's Twitter page, he wrote: Ok it's almost official. I am getting challenged by Dr. Brady for number of followers on our Twitters. Feels like playing another ACC team.
