Each day this week we’re going to shine the spotlight on Twitter accounts that cover the NFL draft. We’re very data oriented at RotoViz, but the cumulative observation of humans is its own datapoint, so I usually have a draft related Twitter list open in my Tweetdeck. Here’s a link to my NFL draft list which has over 450 members. How did I build this list? Pretty much the same way I do anything – I started looking at some numbers. In this case I created a list of mavens in the draft community and then I looked at who the mavens follow. After a little work with the Twitter API and some quick math in Excel, I had my list.
Today we’ll look at five accounts that all have less than 2,000 followers even though they should have eleventy billion followers if you ask me.
We’ll have five more accounts each day of this week, so be sure to check back. Also be sure to check out the draft related articles written by our own draft guy, Jon Moore, ( @TheCFX ). You can also check out our recent articles on Tavon Austin and Stedman Bailey.
