@gordonbeckham is probably the best and most active, now that Lilibridge is gone.

Also just doing a Twitter search for "White Sox" will get you some unexpected stuff once in a while.

Along those lines, I also follow each of the minor league affiliates, but that has nothing to do with the big league club.

@gordonbeckham is probably the best and most active, now that Lilibridge is gone.Except that, for some reason, he's the only one that generates extremely out-of-date tweets, talking about things that happened several days before as if they just happened.

@k0na has broken the news on several trades before they were offically announced. I think he also tweeted about Danks' contract extension before anyone else.

Lillibridge was a terrible follow

i honestly think a lot of the fans are a blast to follow-- professionally, im bias towards scott merkin and his account @scottmerkin . if you want some entertaining tweets about the sox, theres a ton of fans who are all great follows.

I agree the fake hawk and KW accounts are golden. Im glad to be followed by both. Theres a fake AJ Pierzynski account out there too that could be potentially funny ...

my two friends Stacy, Lizz and I have accounts and have a pretty decent following by sox fans... I'm @whitesoxdiaries, Stacy is @SassySouthsider and Lizz is @SoxyRanger ... i really dont think I follow many people who aren't sox fans or involved in baseball in some way. Courtney Hawkins is really involved with his followers and i find him a good follow.... jake peavy and adam dunn have been stepping their game up sort of lately.

its a shame we dont have anyone who treats twitter the way brandon phillips with the reds does... hes always on that thing interacting w/ fans. LoMo is the same way but he can be annoying at times.

Who?

Miami Marlins 1B/OF Logan Morrison. I stopped following him after realizing much of his twitter use was spent trolling for, uhh, women.

Well, Logan isn't the only one who does that... I got a DM from Brandon Phillips about a year ago that said "Just wanted to say that you sexy young lady."

He wasn't following me so I couldnt respond but my cousin and I had a pretty good laugh.. pro athletes have no shame :rolleyes::tongue:
