While it apears that quarterback and cover boy Ryan Fitzpatrick isn't on Twitter, you can follow the Bills' equipment managers. That's right, diehard Bills fan can follow either equipment manager Jeff Mazurek () and assistant equipment manager Moose Haws () or both. And if jerseys, pads, helmests, shoes and such aren't your thing, you can follow Bills CEO Russ Brandon () to get your news and information straight from the top.

And if you are a diehard Bills fan chances are you are already following the Buffalo Jills () and are probably card-carrying members of the official Buffalo Bills Booster Club (), who have been supporting their beloved team since 1961.

For the fifth straight season, the Bills will head north to Toronto to play a home game, this time hosting Seattle in Week 14 on Dec. 9. Even though the game is still four months away, it has its own Twitter feed () with more than 2,500 followers and counting.

Those fans who wish to relive the glory days of the Bills teams that made it to four straight Super Bowls from 1990-93 are also in luck as they have the opporunity to follow Jim Kelly (), Thurman Thomas (), Andre Reed (), Cornelius Bennett (), Steve Tasker () and/or Darryl Talley () if they so choose.
