Tim Tebow’s Social Media Success Rubs Off on Eddie Royal

Tim Tebow may not be that successful at building a Twitter following, but Broncos wide receiver Eddie Royal is starting to draw a crowd on the social media websites.

Royal already is well over 100,000 Facebook "likes" and 50,000 Twitter followers . Most of his traffic developed over the past week due to his offering to give away two tickets to Saturday's Broncos-Patriots game. He was also going to provide plane tickets and lodging. The lucky person was to meet Royal for dinner Friday night.

This contest was sponsored by a nutritional supplement company that was connected to Royal through his Twitter coach, Jeff Weiner.
