If you want proof of the power of Twitter, look no further than Sacramento Kings shooting guard Ben McLemore. A few days ago, he sent out several tweets saying that his dog, Rolex (which, first of all, that’s a great name for a dog from someone who can actually afford a Rolex), was missing.
Anyone who’s ever owned a dog can relate to McLemore’s worries in this situation, but he has something most people don’t have: a huge platform to ask for help finding him. He has more than 100,000 followers on Twitter, many of whom are in the Sacramento area, which is pretty convenient when you’re looking for a lost dog and need to get the word out to as many people as possible. Fortunately, a couple of fans found Rolex and gave this story a happy ending.
