Draft Season is Coming: The Twitter Accounts You Have to be Following

shahidkhan
When I’m trying to decide who to follow on twitter I use the same process I use for any decision I make.

I put on the tape.

After 26 hours in my tape watching dungeon, where I strapped myself down so I couldn’t leave, and where I peed into spent Red Bull cans in order to save time1, I can report that I have found the right people for you to follow on twitter.

These people show ability to write good tweets, engage with their followers, high point the football, play either a 1 or a 2 technique, follow back if you ask them to, have only a reasonable amount of character red flags, show ability to look off coverage with their eyes, drive the football through the wind, only report you for spam if you’re being a real asshole, and in general are just good Twitter citizens.

Actually I’m effing with you. I generated the list below using the same method I use to do pretty much anything. First step, fire up R. Second step, do a small amount of data mining. I found 11 accounts that I consider fantasy football influencers. These are people like @sigmundbloom, @matthewberryTMR, @evansilva and 8 other guys.

Then I downloaded a list of the 11 influencers follows, ran some numbers on those followers like how many of the influencers followed them, how many lists they’re included in, etc. Eventually I got to this list.

Oh yeah, I also deleted every account with more than 5,000 followers because eff the man, that’s what I say. Actually I deleted the people with more than 5,000 followers because you don’t need my help in finding those people. The list below is actually comprised of people that you might not know about, save for my 26 hours of disgusting Red Bull fueled tape watching in my dungeon2.

So make sure to add these people to your follow list. Following the right people on Twitter is a totally free way to make sure you’re never a step behind your leaguemates.
