I am frequently asked to recommend a handful of ESPN personalities and brands to follow on Twitter. So that I could have something to point to – below is a far-from-comprehensive list that includes a variety of sports, opinions and types.
Additionally, I am excited to announce an integration with Twitter using their new Twitter List widget. ESPN is one of two publishers (London Fashion Week) to be part of the widget launch. You can see them in action here (College Football Nation Blog) and here (Tennis & US Open).
