It’s no secret that NFL receiver Chad Ochocinco loves Twitter and his followers. During the NFL playoffs, a follower named Victor Gonzalez tweeted @Ochocinco and complained that he had never received a response in the two years he has been tweeting at him. Feeling guilty, Ochocinco went out of his way to fly him to the Patriots playoff game against the Broncos.
So it came as no surprise Monday night when he tweeted a dinner invitation for the first 200 people to show up at a restaurant in New York City.
Of course 200 of his followers showed up and got a free meal.
According to TMZ, sources at the restaurant, Sylvia’s Soul Food restaurant in Harlem, said Ochocinco spent $7,914.
“Met 200 hundred people 2night,” the Patriots receiver tweeted after the meal. “Now I’ve 200 new friends, even better 200 new friends have my phone number. Now that s*** is #Epic or #Crazy.”
