Philadelphia Eagles training camp beginning next TOMORROW on Friday, July 25th. 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.
With Eagles training camp being closed to the public (save for three practices open to the public), following along on Twitter is truly the best way to keep track of things. Sign up for a Twitter account - it's quick and easy. (Click here)
Disclaimer - I may have 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 3rd Annual Definitive Twitter List for Eagles Fans (in no particular order):
Bleeding Green Nation
As I noted on Thursday, I'll be covering training camp every day for BGN. It'll be the second straight year where I've covered Eagles TC and I'm really looking forward to it. I tweet live updates from practice and press conferences so I'd say I'm a pretty useful follow. (I'm really humble, too.) Again, that's @BrandonGowton.
Mike lives in
Florida Arizona, so no TC for him. Slacker. But follow him anyway.
Dan won't be at TC but he would like to than kyou for following him in advance.
Just ask Dave if he likes gladiator movies.
I never know whether to call him 'Jim' or 'James'. Follow him so we can clear this up.
Mark is a man of many hats. He wrote a book about about Chip Kelly. He's going to have another one that will be released in the future. Mark will also be attending TC for at least one day.
Brent predicted the Eagles would win at least 9 games last year and he ended up being the most accurate weekly NFL game picker in the entire country. I'm starting to think he's smart or something.
Allen made a lot of friends with his Jeremy Maclin piece!
Used to write for the Eagles and used to write for BGN. P-Wall is coming back to write for us.
Jack of all trades, master of none.

Good people that contribute to BGN.
When Tommy isn't too busy with PBR, pudding, funyons, and Megan Fox, he's busy writing some of the best Eagles content on the web. Iggles Blitz is awesome.
All-22 breakdowns of TC are unlikely but expect preseason All-22 breakdowns.
All the Eagles players can all be found on Twitter in that one convenient link above.

Piloted by the Eagles' website writers.
The #1 source for unbiased Eagles coverage. Spuds! Dave also contributes to BGN in our "From the Eagles" series.
Eagles TV/web producer. Outstanding follow year-round, but particularly during draft season.
No, he's not the Kansas City Chiefs QB or the veteran NFL tight end. He's AS720 and he writes good stuff for PE.com.
The biggest hack of all time. Only follow him out of pity.
Not related to John McLane.
If you have something bad to say about Zach Berman, there's a good chance you're an idiot.
Sometimes Les is more. I'm sure he's never heard that joke before.
Also follow his son, Rich Hofmann. Hofmann. Not Hoffman.
You could say he has some writing experience.
CSN Philly guys
Mosher is CSN Philly's official Eagles insider so he always has the scoop.
Barkann does the 10AM - 1 PM show with Ike Reese on weekdays at 94 WIP.
Kulp is one of the nicest guys you'll ever meet.
Philly Mag guys
OK, I lied. Sheil is the nicest guy you'll ever meet. His TC notes are always top notch.
T-Mac often has the scoop before everyone else. He's great at breaking stories.
Allentown Morning Call guys
I can't say I know much about Fierro but he's at practice every day.
Burlington County Times (and others)
Mainly a Sixers guy, but he'll drop in at the NovaCare here and there.
Delco Times guys
Atlantic City Press
When he's not tweeting about Cape May he's tweeting about the Eagles. Or golfing. Or MMA.
Everyone's favorite BGN alum!
