Social media platforms burst into action almost immediately, with Kevin Ware’s name and #prayforware becoming widespread on Twitter and other micro blogging sites.
A few days after the injury Ware updated his fans and well-wishers through posting regularly on his Twitter account. The support for the Louisville player reached incredible highs with thousands of new followers every day.
Ware posted an inspirational picture of himself on crutches just a couple of days after his accident becoming an instant icon for this year’s March Madness.
