The Twitter 100: The Definitive List Of Twitterers That Boston College Fans Should Follow

BC Twitter Fail

Now that our fearless leader and Director of Athletics Gene DeFilippo has joined the ranks of Boston College fans and alumni on Twitter @BCGeneD, I figured it was up to BC Interruption -- @bcinterruption -- to give GDF a list of Twitter accounts he should be following.

Below is the inaugural list of the top 100 Twitter accounts GDF must follow to get your fix on everything Boston College Eagles. It's an exhaustive list, but not nearly exhaustive enough, so feel free to add the names I missed in the comments.

You can follow the complete list here, though some accounts are protected so you'll have to get their individual permissions to follow them. In no particular order ...
