Full Court Press: Who to Follow on Twitter

To follow up my previous post expressing the importance of intelligent Twitter-use, I’ve decided to include some suggestions for the best people to follow in the sports business community. These are just a few of the many smart, entertaining, and informative industry professionals that are very active on Twitter (in no particular order).

Jayson Stark - @jaysonst
- A baseball expert source -- Stark provides statistics, in-depth analysis, and of course some fun baseball trivia! As a local guy, he has great feedback on the Philadelphia sports scene.

Buster Olney -  @Buster_ESPN
- Another baseball aficionado, Olney tweets any current news and information from across the league. Everything you’d need to know, this guy will tell you first.

Darren Rovell - @darrenrovell
- From the business side of the industry, Rovell is always teaching me knew things and provides plenty of interesting facts. Not to mention, his photos and videos from around the nation are always entertaining

Rachel Nichols - @Rachel_Nichols
- She might be all over the place, but you can always expect her on the sideline, talking to players and coaches. She tweets very unique insight, quotes, and observations.

Rick Reilly - @ReillyRick
- A long time journalist and writer, he has a way with words. He’s goofy and informative at the same time. What could be better?

Those are a few of my personal suggestions. Who are your favorite people to follow on Twitter? Let me know! I’m always looking to add to my spectrum.

  1. A couple of really good non-ESPNer is Dave Zirin (writes about sports and politics for The Nation) and Richard Deitsch (writes sports media among other things for SI). Both very informative about the world of sports.
