The Final Four is upon us and in true March Madness tradition fans for each of the four remaining teams are talking smack about their favorite programs.
With the prevalence of social media upon us much of the smack talking, team supporting talk has taken to Twitter and we have the stats.
To date the NCAA college basketball tournament has reached more than 678 million Twitter users.
The fan favorite appears to be Louisville which has racked up 31.6 percent of all Twitter mentions. The team at Radian6 also found the Michigan Wolverines to be in high demand with 30.6 percent of all mentions. Tied for third place were Syracuse and Wichita with 18.9 percent of all Twitter mentions.
New York City is also winning the NCAA-based Twitter battle with 41,919 Twitter mentions for the city’s name.

Cool infographic! I filled out a bracket for the first time this year and Syracuse was the only Final Four I got.
I just love these Infographics. So much great information and I pass on to others. (people think I'm really smart) LOL.
That's interesting! I hope it's anybody as LONG as it's not Michigan. Go Bucks! 🙂
