Okay, this post is for nothing more than fun. But I recently heard there is a lower level organization which considers social media followers as a % of their judging criteria! So imagining this was true in the IFBB we can rank last years Mr Olympia competitors if Twitter was the judge.

After putting these together my initial observation was who the hell is Dennis Wolf’s PR Manager? Or maybe Twitter just isn’t popular in Germany? Also note how few of the young up and coming stars poorly manage to attract twitter followers. It seems only Steve Kuclo “gets it”.

Oddly the super popular “Blue Collar” guy Evan Centopani doesn’t even have a twitter account. Which proves you don’t have to be popular on twitter to be popular with bodybuilding fans.

Of course twitter isn’t the only social media platform, but it’s telling nonetheless.
