MSU has a strong presence on Twitter, so we’ve compiled the top 100 accounts you need to follow as a Bulldog fan.

Twitter is the social media platform of choice for keeping fans up-to-date, up-to-the-second on MSU sports. The athletic administration uses it a lot, beat reporters use it a lot, and just common every day fans use it a lot.

Generally speaking, most MSU fans just follow their favorite accounts on twitter and scroll through their timelines to stay updated. They may ask a question to someone or give a #HailState after a big win, but they aren’t there pumping the maroon and white everyday. There are, however, fans who talk about Mississippi State on Twitter every single day, all day long. Some good some bad.

There’s even “Egg Bowl” twitter – a daily dose of Egg Bowl week between MSU and Ole Miss fans who hate each other so much they can’t stop talking about one another.

There’s pumping sunshine MSU Twitter – a daily dose of all the great things happening at MSU even when there’s a lot of losing going on.

There’s the sky is falling MSU Twitter – a daily dose of pessimism and sarcasm even when there’s a lot of winning going on.

You can pretty much find everything under the sun on Twitter. So I’ve broken the top 100 accounts into eight categories:

  1. beat reporters
  2. coaches / administration / official accounts
  3. fan sites
  4. fans
  5. parody / faceless promoter
  6. former and current players
  7. SEC
  8. M&WN

Within each category I’m going to rank the Twitter accounts. I gave our site (M&WN) its own category because I don’t want to attempt to rank us among others – I can’t do that without bias, but still I’ve got to include us in the top 100, right?

Let’s get started with the beat reporters…
