There’s a new trend on social media that involves athletes and final exams

Who cares about getting an education when you can get a retweet?

It appears that many students can get out of taking final exams if a certain athletes respond to their request on Twitter for a retweet. 

And now this seems to be a trend on the social media tool.

Kobe Bryant actually came through for a student on Thursday.


Aaron Rodgers did the same on Friday.


A quick search of Twitter shows that Kobe and Rodgers are just two of many athletes who have been hit up with similar pleas.
