Because of my new job with Sports Media Challenge I have been making an effort to spread my Twitter reach outside of just the social media world and into the sports community. If you’re like me and you’re looking to connect with some of the top Twitter influencers, this list should get you started.
I want to thank Ron Goch (even though he insisted I didn’t have to) from The Telios Group who took a peak at the initial list that I put together and added a few more names.
Keep in mind that under no circumstances is this list comprehensive. In fact, I’m fairly certain I missed some people. So please, by all means if I left someone out, let me know in the comments and I’ll do my best to maintain this list and keep it up to date as a resource for people looking to connect with sports marketing people on Twitter.
