‘Riders Fans Bombard Twitter

Over the weekend, our Twitter page reached 3,000 followers, which is an awesome accomplishment that is very worthy of a big thank you. By the way, lucky follower #3,000 is @tex198.

Still, this is an opportunity for us to reach out and acknowledge some of our Twitter followers in a few different categories. First, how about some of the ones who mention us a lot on Twitter?

@VisitFrisco: They almost always mention upcoming home stands at Dr Pepper Ballpark.

@BLAKIEJ_BAM: A visitor to Dr Pepper Ballpark and a viewer of the ‘Riders on TXA 21.

@tiffanytilyard: Pretty much the same.

@armenontheair: He was the star of this show, that’s for sure.

@andylonghorn: Tweets and pictures to us, which is a great behind-the-scenes look.

@TexasRangers_HQ: We are a consistent “Follow Friday” account from this Twitter-er.

But hey, this is a thank you to every RoughRiders follower, not just the most vocal ones. How about we go through and see some of the most unique followers. These made the cut:

@DrAwesomeberry: A guy with this Twitter handle needs more than 14 followers, that’s for sure.

@DallasCowShirts: His mission: “We steal shirts from cows for YOU!” Obviously.

@LauraHiccups: That’s not her last name, according to her account. Still, a great account name.

@DrCrankinstein: We have plenty of well-qualified doctors following the RoughRiders.

@waxo1: The best bio of our followers: “A nice guy.” And that only takes 11 characters.

@KitKat_Fanatic: They are delicious, after all.

@rottenredneck17: Fair enough.

@Beercycler: “Trying to combine running, cycling, and great beers from around the world.” Sounds like a challenge, but I wish him well.

@JCUStreaks10: He has “giggidy” in his description. That’s enough for me.

@Biggios_Helmet: Craig Biggio’s helmet was quite memorable, so why not get a Twitter account for it?

@CanadianWaffles: I’ve never had one. Sounds delicious.

@ihatesaladforks: Who doesn’t?

@octopusfan: Unfortunately, this diehard octopus fan has only come up with two tweets so far.

@abusedsquirrel: On this note, we better stop.

Thanks to everyone who is a part of our Twitter feed. We hope you enjoy all of our content. Looking forward to getting to 4,000 soon!
