padrestwitterIt’s that time of year again. Two years ago, I published what I considered to be the most comprehensive list of Padres-related Twitter accounts that I thought every Padres fan should be following. I updated it as needed as players were traded or people changed jobs, but that just got time-consuming and monotonous.

I redid the entire thing exactly one year later, with new accounts added and others removed, mostly due to repetitiveness or just no longer existing.

I revisited it this month, and what follows are the results.

Some are informative follows. Some are humorous. Some are both. But all of them, I guarantee*, will improve your Padres Twitter experience.

*Guarantee void in Tennessee. And everywhere else, for that matter. I guarantee nothing except eventual death.

Grouped by category but in pretty much no particular order otherwise.

Bought-off and Corrupted


I purposely tried to avoid putting any national writers on this, as most of these accounts end up referencing and retweeting things from reporters like Ken Rosenthal or Jon Heyman and writers like Craig Calcaterra or Jonah Keri. That would probably be overkill.

Or another post altogether…

    Trimming my feed after way too many random followbacks, but still found a bunch to add here…except @Fast_Squirrel hasn’t been active in over a year, nearly as long for @Bipster10 (one of my favorite players and one of the coolest, most fan-friendly guys from my childhood). @mdloretta also inactive for 3+ months…now off to tell Bevacqua my dad allegedly stole his All Star gear bag and I stole it from my dad…

    • Yeah, I noticed those inactive accounts after the fact. Next year they’ll probably be gone.
