There is a fine art to commanding a powerful twitter audience and some players can do it better than others. You don’t have to be a star player to be a twi-xpert.

Top Rams To Follow:
Moose Nation is a particular favorite as he is a self-proclaimed "THUG." Or Totally Humble Under God. An interesting and positive twist. Additionally, Pro-Football-Reference.com lists star defensive end Chris Long as owning @CL9One, but a quick visit to the page indicates that it is no longer active.
