I am a big sports fan, that's why my twitter background is a baseball glove chair. I've even been known to blog a bit about it. Twitter has been great at connecting sports fans into a big happy family. Living on the west coast, I don't have many opportunities to watch the Red Sox on TV, but Twitter brings the action to me. Each game, RedSoxcast broadcasts the play by play. And using hashtags, Red Sox nation keeps up using Twemes. Many of Boston's biggest fans like Aaron Strout, Doug Haslam, Bryan Person, Jim Storer, Adam Cohen and Kyle Flaherty chat away as if they were at the Cask and Flagon. Of course, a final wrap up from the Boston Globe completes the coverage.
Of course, there are other fans that are active on twitter like the Mets and Red Wings. Wouldn't you expect that from a strong community? What team do you follow on twitter?
