Who are the top 10 Twitterers?  Here’s the first half of them!

Why anyone votes for Keene is beyond me, but hey, y’all did so we have to talk about him.  No, seriously, Keene is a witty, snarky guy who is willing to take anything the Cardinals do and give it a sardonic twist.  He can be a little quieter in the offseason and didn’t tweet as much this year with the rough season, but that may be why he moved up the listing.

Hey, I think Crash kept the same Twitter handle all year long! I can tease him because we’ve known each other via message boards and the like for close to 15 years.  Crash is a passionate, fired up, dyed in the wool Cardinal fan that has no problem expressing his opinions and running hot with how things are going on and off the field.  Depending on your point of view, you’ll love him or be infuriated by him, more than likely!

One of the rare blog accounts that is more than just a feed for links on their posts, VEB is a very active account run by a number of their writers.  I mean, there are links to their stuff, which isn’t surprising, but there are also numerous tweets during the game and reactions to news.  It’s also fun to also guess who is actually running it on a daily basis, though it’s pretty easy to tell when it’s Heather.

Cardinals and Blues writer @KMOV. Owner @TheIntrepidSTL. Mizzou grad. Pollster. I’m no Seth.

I should have found a poll tweet to embed above because that’s what Brenden is known for this time of year.  Any sort of trade possibility that’s rumored or even if it’s not, Brenden will put it out there to get the pulse of Cardinal Nation.  Plenty of good stuff besides the polls on his feed as well, including links to some of his writing.  Lots of good discussions come about as well!

Number 6: stlcupofjoe
Joe Schwarz, Pharmacist (PharmD) | Pitching analysis, formerly at @vivaelbirdos | #GoDawgs | stlcupofjoe at gmail dot com

Joe hasn’t gotten around (as of preparing this post) to changing his Twitter bio to reflect his new home, as he is one of the driving influences behind the new Birds on the Black site.  One of the best known writers on pitching in Cardinal Nation, it’s not surprising that it didn’t take long for him to write another article on Carlos Martinez.  Joe’s feed will also touch on soccer and Butler, but it’s worth following anyway.  If you want to know something about pitching, Joe’s the guy to ask.

We’re almost to the top!  Come back and see who gets the top spot–it’s not the same as last year!
