Troup wins Twitter contest
By KEVIN ECKLEBERRY
It was a winning Friday for the Troup High Tigers.
Football programs across the country are competing in the Friday Night Likes competition, with teams going head-to-head while trying to get the most likes and retweets on Twitter.
In its first Friday Night Likes showdown, Troup lost to Richmond Hill 517-402.
Troup (@TigerTempo) rebounded on Friday with a 397-265 victory over the Alexander Cougars (@ahscougars).
The competition began at noon and went for one hour, and two points were awarded for a retweet of a school logo, and one point for a like.
Richmond Hill, which beat Troup two weeks ago, improved to 3-0 with a 753-508 win over John Tyler (Tex.) on Friday.
The competition will continue next week.
