Mo’Ne Davis Grows Social Following Thanks to Newfound Fame

The 13-year-old Little Leaguer Mo’ne Davis not only landed the cover of Sports Illustrated this week, she’s gained a huge following on social media as well. Magic Johnson, Michelle Obama and Lil Wayne have all tweeted about her, and the young athlete herself has enjoyed very fast growth on social platforms thanks to the buzz.

Davis sent her first (re)tweet on August 11 from @Monedavis11, and quickly racked up over 29,000 followers.

Davis just makes the cut for Instagram’s age requirement, which is 13-years-old, according to its Terms of Use. Twitter doesn’t have an age restriction.
