The 8th Annual Definitive Twitter List for Philadelphia Eagles Fans

Training camp begins this week! Make sure you’re ready by following all the noteworthy people associated with the Eagles on Twitter.

NFL: JUN 14 Eagles Minicamp

The first Philadelphia Eagles training camp practice begins TOMORROW (July 25) so now is a great time to update the people you follow on Twitter. The following is a list of Eagles players, writers, etc., who you should be following heading into training camp.

With Eagles training camp being closed to the public (save for one open practice), following along on Twitter is the best way to keep track of everything in real-time: practice highlights, news, injuries, quotes, etc. (Besides staying tuned here to Bleeding Green Nation, of course.)

Disclaimer: I’m always bound to miss some people, perhaps some obvious ones. If I did, it was probably unintentional. Feel free to tweet at me to let me know who I missed. Without further delay, I present to you the 8th Annual Definitive Twitter List for Eagles Fans.

Bleeding Green Nation

Will be at training camp:

Brandon Lee Gowton - @BrandonGowton

I’ll be at Eagles training camp every single day. This is my seventh year covering it in person. I tweet live updates from practice and press conferences. I also take plenty of pictures/video along with streaming portions of practice live on BGN’s official Facebook page. Follow me: @BrandonGowton.

Bleeding Green Nation account - @BleedingGreen

Yes, the account itself will be there at training camp. Big deal!

Won’t be at training camp, but still worth following:

SB Nation - @SBNation

Follow the mothership for all of your sports news.

Alexis Chassen - @Lovelybuckeye

As always, Alexis will be helping out with news coverage in addition to press conference recaps. She’s also going to have a baby before you know it!

Michael Kist - @MichaelKistNFL

The best doggone podcast producer and host that BGN Radio has ever had. I’ll be doing daily post-practice recap pods with Kist so make sure you subscribe in order to not miss an episode!

Benjamin Solak - @BenjaminSolak

Ben was at training camp last year but he won’t be there this year so it’s totally cool to unfollow him now. Just kidding. Only trying to see if he actually ends up reading this write-up.

Dave Mangels - @Southern_Philly

Dave will be making regular contributions to the site. Follow him on Twitter for his expertise in snark (among other things). Whatever you do, don’t sit in his chair.

John Stolnis - @JohnStolnis

John is often known as a Phillies guy but he obviously contributes to our Eagles coverage as well.

Ben Natan - @TheBenNatan

We’ll be hearing from Ben with college football starting up later this summer!

Tyler Jackson - @tjackRH

Tyler has a role in running the BGN Twitter, Instagram, and Snapchat (Bleeding-Green) accounts. He also makes some of the videos you see on the BGN Facebook Page. Go follow along with all that stuff!

James Keane - @JeromesFriend

Jim does some awesome data posts that are way too smart for any of us to actually understand. He’s also best friends with Jaws.

Matt Harkenreader - @Harkenfootball

Matt has retired from crunching the numbers but he’s still around to weigh in on Eagles/NFL stuff.

Cody Benjamin - @CodyJBenjamin

Cody has a weekly column for us during the regular season.

Lee Sifford - @LeeSifford

Lee is BGN’s fantasy football guy. He’s also been known to drop some scorching hot takes!

BGN alumni:

Patrick Wall - @ByPatrickWall

Patrick doesn’t really write about the Eagles anymore because he’s too busy being the famous drummer of one of the best bands from Philadelphia: Queen of Jeans. He still shares Eagles thoughts on Twitter.

Dan - @snaxonly

He’s retired from the blog game but I made a deal with Danta Klaus that he has to write at least one post on BGN per year. He has not yet filled that quota for 2019.

Jonny Page - @JonnyPage9

We all miss Jonny’s excellent film breakdowns.

Sean Cottrell - @S_Cottrell23

Ditto for Sean!

BGN Radio

For specific podcast focus:

Brandon Lee Gowton - @BrandonGowton

Michael Kist - @MichaelKistNFL

Benjamin Solak - @BenjaminSolak

John Stolnis - @JohnStolnis

... plus some more interesting additions hopefully coming soon?!

Jack is very funny and a good friend. Just don’t let him see this because it’ll go to his head.

Trevor Strunk - @Hegelbon

Trev is the other half of the sadly defunct “Don’t Go To The Phones” podcast. It was always a funny, entertaining, and intelligent listen.

Perpetually the biggest hack of all time. He’ll be at training camp.

Matt Mullin - @matt_mullin

Joe Santoliquito - @JSantoliquito

As always, I’ll leave it up to Bo to write his own entry if he sends me one.
