Some social media connections

Jenifer Langosch/

One thing that I wanted to make sure I do before leaving the Pirates beat was to make a list of Pirates players who connect with fans via Twitter. I cannot promise that the list below is comprehensive, but it should at least be close to identifying most of the Pirates players (in the Majors and Minors) who you can follow on Twitter.

For those unfamiliar with Twitter, know that it has undoubtedly changed how athletes interact with fans. It used to be that the media served as the middleman between athletes and fans. Now, athletes often announce their own news via Twitter, as Paul Maholm did regarding his agreement with the Cubs earlier this week. It’s also a unique way for fans to talk to (and sometimes hear from) the athletes they watch.
