At the start of the NCAA March Madness tournament, the Fox Sports NFL Twitter account began a bracket challenge to identify the “best NFL fan base.”
Each team was seeded according to the number of followers for each official team account. The Titans were given the 31st overall seed, or one of four “eight” seeds, and matched up against America’s Team in the first round.
We took down the Cowboys’ fanbase just like our Titans did to their team on Monday Night Football, and then went on to beat the Vikings in the Sweet Sixteen and the Colts in the Elite Eight despite being heavily outmatched in every round.
If you want to look at the numbers...— Erik Bacharach (@ErikBacharach) March 29, 2019
—Colts’ official twitter handle has ~250k more followers than @Titans
—Vikings’ handle has ~450k more
—Cowboys’ handle has ~3 MILLION more
And yet none of that has mattered at all. #TitansTwitter has yet to be stopped. https://t.co/Z3x5Kbvszo
Now, we’re in the Final Four. And we’re getting crushed.
So spread the word and let’s keep this Cinderella dance going! I’ve already made an alliance with the Bears’ Windy City Gridiron to get more votes.
To create buzz and attract more votes for our previous match-up with the Colts, I put together a little hype video. So get hyped to win this poll and help the Titans come out on top!
If this doesn't inspire you to vote for the @Titans, perhaps nothing will...— Titans Film Room (@titansfilmroom) March 29, 2019

Yes, it’s just a meaningless Twitter poll. That doesn’t make it a waste of time to try to win. So let’s do it.
