Exactly 364 days ago, I compiled a list of all of the Twitter accounts that Padres’ fans should be following. It did not come without controversy, as I had complaints from people who thought they should be on it throughout the course of the year.

I updated it in January, adding some and removing others. Since then the Padres made moves on and off the field, changing who should and shouldn’t be on the list.

I have updated it once again. Some accounts are gone, others have been added. Some are still not on it.

To be honest, some of these accounts I don’t follow. On @GhostofRAK, that is. However, I’ve included them because they have some connection to the Padres or Padres’ fans that might interest you.

Here we go, grouped by category but in pretty much no particular order:

Padres Organization

  • Padres – Obviously
  • PetcoPark
  • FriarFigures – Facts and figures on the Padres compiled by the team’s communications department
  • ResPadres – Randy Smith, Vice President of Player Development

There you have it. You should be following all of these accounts if you are a Padres’ fan. Did I miss some? Yes, absolutely. However, I don’t really need want to hear about how I missed you, your brother, or even your grandmother’s nephew’s former college roommate’s girlfriend’s dog.

Maybe next year you’ll make the cut. Or not.

A lot can happen in 365 days.
