With training camp beginning next Monday, now would be the appropriate time to audit the people you follow on Twitter. The following is a list of Eagles players, writers, superfans, etc., who you should be following heading into training camp.
Disclaimer - I'm positive I missed some people, perhaps some obvious ones. If I did, it was unintentional. Feel free to Tweet at me to let me know who I missed and I'll add them in. Without further adieu, the 2nd Annual Definitive Twitter List for Eagles Fans (in no particular order):
I'll be covering training camp every day from Monday until the end of August of for Philly.com, Allentown Morning Call, and BGN. In other words, I'll be pretty busy.
Brandon will be covering TC for BGN, and should be there most days.
Mike lives in Florida, so no TC for him. Slacker. But follow him anyway.
Dan will be at TC every day, working as an intern for the Eagles. So BGN will have 3 writers at TC in some capacity this year.
Tommy puddin' pops does a podcast with me here at BGN, so we'll include him, but his primary work is over at IgglesBlitz.com.
All the Eagles players can all be found on Twitter in that one convenient link above.
The team's official Twitter account.
Piloted by the Eagles' website writers.
The #1 source for unbiased Eagles coverage. Spuds! :)
Eagles TV/web producer. Outstanding follow year-round, but particularly during draft season.
Not related to John McLane.
If you have something bad to say about Zach Berman, there's a good chance you're an asshole.
Les is 74.7% less curmudgeony than his reputation.
He looks terrific in a leisure suit.
Rich's son followed me, and I thought, "Wow, Rich Hofmann has fewer followers than I would have thought." Follow them both.
I've been reading Bob's stuff for a loooong time. Sorry, Bob. :)
Just in case you didn't follow me above, here's another chance to reconsider.
CSN Philly guys
Roob is going to take a few days off from educating us about Ben Revere's batting average since the start of May and focus on football.
There are no Penn Staters for Geoff to shoehorn into his 53-man roster projection this year.
I don't think Gunner and I have ever talked. Maybe this is the year, RealDGunn. Be ready.
Kudos to Michael for humoring Ed Rendell for the last 20 years.
I'm going to tell DeSean that Andrew didn't like his rap video. And that he hates Emil Igwenagu.
Philly Mag guys
Ha, just kidding. Sheil and Tim are becoming legendary over at Philly Mag.
Allentown Morning Call guys
That's my teammate. That's my quarterback.
Last chance to follow me. OK, now I'm just begging.
Burlington County Times (and others)
Highly underrated writer. One of my personal favorites.
Mainly a Sixers guy, but he'll drop in at the NovaCare here and there.
Delco Times guys

Another BGN alum.

97.3 ESPN. Loudest game updater for Sirius radio in the history of the modern press box. :)
Former special teams maven, current radio host.
Multiple people have asked me who the slicked-back hair guy is in the background of interview sessions with players and coaches. That's Lombo.
I co-hosted a radio show with Jeff last year. The 3 dozen people who heard it all agree it was the best show in the history of radio.
Other national guys/gals who live locally and show up at Eagles practices from time to time
He likes Seinfeld. I think.
Universally respected. I think.
This is assuming Mike doesn't get another great job offer between now and next Monday.
Jenny will be part of SI's MMQB launch.
Formerly with Philly.com, now with ESPN, still in Philly.
