And no he wasn’t there trying to get a date, professor Ted Spiker lectured about the role Twitter plays in the sports world and kicked off Operation Ochocinco.

Accroding to TheAlligator, Students took to their personal Twitter accounts to catch the attention of Johnson, who has more than 3.7 million followers and 40,000 tweets.

  Spiker said:

“I’ve had this thought before that we ought to put our Twitter power in one concerted effort.”

At about 11 a.m., Johnson responded. Girls shrieked, guys gasped and Spiker’s face lit up.

20-year-old telecommunication junior Nick Swain said:

Everybody in the class got pretty excited.” 

After sorting through technical difficulties, the athlete video-chatted with the class about his love for Twitter, opinions about football and his trip to Gainesville last weekend.
