Top Influential Sports Journalists and Bloggers on Twitter

These guys are recently been listed as most influential journalists and bloggers for football news. Tweet-ing has its benefits! I share the following article from puntersrealm.

Since Twitter recently released a list function, we thought it was time to share our list of who we follow as the most influential (mostly European) sports journalists and bloggers in world sport. These journalists cover mostly European sports, like football (soccer), and cricket, but you can find other journalists and bloggers who are important for their own reasons.

Most of these journalists have a great influence on today’s sports media, but some of them are up-and-coming. Some of those up-and-coming writers may seem to only have spent five minutes on their twitter accounts, but we are a part of a huge list of followers, just waiting for them to speak. It will be exciting to follow them in the future, you can bet on that.
