Hell, he is the 6th most followed sports related figure on Twitter.  Even more impressive, only 4 actual athletes have more followers than Ochocinco.  His football career seems all but over after the way he has performed this year in New England.  If you cannot put up halfway decent numbers being a receive in Tom Brady’s offense, you should just hang up your cleats.  But that hasn’t stopped Ocho from continuing his great success on Twitter.  He even shared his secrets to success on Twitter with students from Emerson College.

Ocho responded to a tweet from the students and met them for dinner.  In fact, he paid for them and gave them tips on how to get more followers on Twitter:

1.) Be Inventive: Claims his creativity has helped him get a following.

2.) Don’t censor yourself: He enjoys using salty language (aka cursing) on his feed.

3.) Use it to pick up dates: Ocho says he met his fiancee on the site because they had a fight.

4.) Have comebacks ready: The Pats star enjoys responding to negative comments with witty zingers.

5.) Do it yourself: Ocho claims he’s the only one who ever handles his Twitter feed.

It is not known if Ocho will pursue teaching Twitter 101 at the college once his NFL career has officially ended.
