Josh Allen Tweet Teaches Buffalo School Kids a Lesson in Social Media
There are a few kids in one Western New York classroom who learned a lesson today, thanks to Josh Allen.
The Bills Mafia Babes group tweeted on behalf of one of their members, looking to get a response from Josh Allen.
The teacher was hoping to demonstrate a lesson in the power and reach of social media.
They posted about a project their class was doing in ELA, where students created some Buffalo Bills images. The teacher then said she would share them on social media to see how many people shared them, commented, or reacted.
The teacher's objective with the project was to show the power and reach of social media, both good and bad.
To increase the stakes, the teacher told her class if Josh Allen reacted to the tweet, she'd treat them to a pizza party.
Something tells us that Josh Allen must love kids and pizza (and Twitter) because this morning he responded to the tweet, after it has been retweeted by Bills writer Ryan Talbot.
The kids drew pictures related to the Buffalo Bills and their favorite players. Some of the kids' versions of the Buffalo Bills logo is far better than Josh Allen's attempt at it.
No word yet on how excited the kids are for free pizza. Based on Josh Allen's GIF response, he seems pretty excited to have helped out.
It's a good reminder of just how social media works -- sometimes it just takes the right person noticing to make something happen.
