All A Twitter

The Saint John Sea Dogs got much more popular on Twitter over this past season.

In August, we had a post about which current Sea Dogs were the most popular on Twitter in terms of followers. Now it’s June and many players have seen their follower count double or even triple.

Not surprisingly, team captain Jonathan Huberdeau remained the most popular Sea Dog in the Twitterverse. He’s follower count nearly tripped over the season. He was even named the top Tweeter in Saint John at the annual Salty’s social media awards.

Nine players now have over 1,000 followers compared to five in August. One of those nine players is Charlie Coyle who just joined Twitter a few months ago when he became a Sea Dog.

Here’s an updated look at the rankings. Players are ranked in terms of current followers. Only "regular" players are listed so guys like Dylan McGuigan and Jordan Moore are not. It should be noted that some players are newer to Twitter than others. Also, a few players started new accounts mid-season.
