Who are the Top MLB teams on Twitter?
We ranked the teams by our metric, “Twitter Pull”, which measures the second degree connections of the team-their follower’s followers. The Yankees topped the list with a Twitter Pull of 1,416x, which means their Twitter account is 1,416x more influential than the average Twitter account. The Giants and Royals are competing for the championship right now, but the Giants already topped the Royals in our ranking.
We then analyzed the followers of MLB teams to discover the demographic and lifestyle information of this community. The infographic below ranks all MLB teams and provides an overview of who these fans are.
