The Sporting News’ must-follow MLB Twitter list for 2022
Your Twitter experience is really only as good as the people you follow. When it comes to baseball Twitter, following the right people is critical not only to staying informed, but also to staying sufficiently entertained.
While everyone usually has a nice mix of friends, online acquaintances and informed insiders, there are always lots of good follows that go under-followed, or at least go unknown to you. We’re here to help.
Here is The Sporting News’ 2022 must-follow MLB Twitter list. It’s an evolving list, so be sure to follow @sn_mlb and let us know who we should add, or email baseball editor Jason Foster at [email protected] with recommendations.
