Twitter has become an interesting storyline surrounding the relationship between beauty queen Katherine Webb and quarterback AJ McCarron. Webb’s following on the social media service exploded Monday night, leaving McCarron stunned. She was followed by LeBron James, and hit on by athletes like Aaron Murray and Darnell Dockett. But did you know that Twitter is also the way Webb and McCarron met? Webb has conducted several interviews ever since her popularity exploded on Monday night thanks to ESPN making her a focus during the BCS National Championship Game. In an interview with Carol Robinson for AL.com, Webb shared the story of how her relationship with McCarron developed, and she revealed that it all began over the social media network. Webb told Robinson that the two first connected when they were tagged in a tweet by a mutual friend. Webb, who was Miss Alabama USA in 2012, says she did not know who McCarron was at the time. “I had no idea who AJ was. But I thought he was cute,” Webb told AL.com. McCarron started following Webb on Twitter, and she followed him back. The two exchanged phone numbers and began to text. Webb then watched McCarron play in the SEC Championship Game, and they met the following weekend when he showed up to a beauty pageant where she gave up her Miss Alabama crown. “It was kind of cool,” Webb said. “I didn’t know he was coming until about an hour before. The first time I ever saw him, I was walking out on stage and he was on the front row. I was like, ‘Oh Lord.’” Things moved quickly from that point on. Webb attended McCarron’s graduation in Tuscaloosa the following weekend where she met his family. He met her family the next weekend over Christmas break, which is when the first photo of the two was taken. Webb is so serious about the relationship she says she is willing to move from Los Angeles, where she was pursuing a modeling career, back to Alabama to be with McCarron. Though Webb didn’t mind the attention she received from ESPN announcer Brent Musburger and actually defended him, she is bothered by the people hitting on her and not respecting her relationship with McCarron. “I’ve been getting weird tweets from guys since the game,” she told AL.com. “I really want to tweet back and say, ‘Why are you tweeting me? Don’t you know I am in a relationship?’” Yes, I’m pretty sure that message was for you, Darnell Dockett.
