Hey Jayhawk fans - download the @fannect sports app and prove that KU has the best fans #kubball fannect.me

When the Fannect smartphone app launched at the end of February, creators Hunter Browning and Will Coatney told The Pitch that Kansas basketball coach Bill Self would be endorsing the app via his Twitter page. That endorsement finally came at 8:47 a.m.
The exposure is huge for Fannect, which is out to prove whose fans are the best in college and pro sports. Four hours after Self fired off the 140-character thumbs up, 61 people have retweeted it and 28 have made it a favorite.
