On Monday, as Syracuse officially joined the ACC, Stanford and Syracuse announced that their athletic departments traded Twitter handles.
The nation’s most successful athletic department, Stanford, traded its Twitter handle, @SUAthletics, to Syracuse University Athletics. In return, Stanford Athletic’s Twitter handle will be “@GoStanford.”
According to Stanford, “the trade is believed to be the first blockbuster trade in college athletics. To complete the trade, Syracuse will send a collection of local goods to be named later but also including one case of oranges, which Stanford intends to use in refilling its 2011 Orange Bowl trophy.”
