Usage of social media sites like Twitter continues to increase among professional athletes. The opportunity to connect, even for just 140 characters at a time, is greater than ever before. As we prepare for the upcoming season, it’s time to take a quick look at who is connecting with their fans and who’s worth following. All of these accounts have been confirmed by the team.
