Last week, Detroit Lions defensive tackle Ndamukong Suh announced that he was setting out to break the Guinness World Record for most attendees at a tweetup on Saturday. Suh has revealed the number of attendees, and it does indeed break the record.
The tweetup took place prior to the Nebraska Cornhuskers’ spring game on Saturday. Suh had invited Nebraska (his Alma mater) fans to join him, saying, “Let’s CRUSH this world record.”
The Guinness World Records site has yet to acknowledge Suh’s claim, as it still lists Ford Motor Company Social Media guy Scott Monty as the record holder with 1,149 in December 2009. Suh says his tweetup had 1,935 attendees.
Interestingly, Suh’s NFL team, the Lions, are owned by Ford Motor Company founder Henry Ford’s grandson William Clay Ford.
WebProNews spoke with Scott Monty a couple of times about Ford’s social media success. Hear what he had to say in the two interviews here.
According to the Detroit Free Press, Guiness World Records official Sarah Wilcox says Suh’s claimed record is not official yet, adding that evidence must be submitted for review, and that it oculd take a couple days to verify after the paperwork is submitted.
