This is about where we came in last year, but we’ve already gotten two posts out of the way this year. In case you missed it, here are the links:
So which Twitter accounts are in the top 100? I’m so glad you asked. Let’s start counting them down!
We lead off with our regular Meet Me at Musial listener and question contributor Uncle Frank, who also played a lot of The Cardinal Six last year. Gotta appreciate anyone that puts up with all my stuff, right? I’m really surprised to see fellow Conclave member Rusty Groppel down here at 98. I would have expected him to be much higher, especially since he stays active on the media. And I know it’s years in the past by now, but I still miss Fritz’s LEGO creations.
Corey Rudd seems to have at least deactivated his account right now if not deleted it all together. Hopefully he’ll be back on the Twitters sometime soon. Jeff and friggencards made me create new tie breakers after they had the same points on the same ballots and the same number of top scores, but friggencards had a few less 1 ballots and got the nod.
Even though I never spell her name right, ErdrickStorm usually has some good Cardinals and Star Wars thoughts. I’ve enjoyed having her on the Star Wars themed Meet Me at Musials. Clay took a pretty good hit this year, falling 45 spots, and I’m not sure exactly what would have brought that on. SkipperShildt is, I believe, the first person outside of the write-ins to not have a 1 ballot. 2xAught7 might be 83 on the list, but he’s always first with me. You have to be careful with grobot05 during rumor season. Nobody else does as good of a job spoofing things so that they are just believable enough.
Here’s a good way to note the difference in this year and last year–last year, 200 points would have made you 28, not 78. Maq was a little quieter this season, which might have led to his dropping in the standings. We’ve also got the head of Redbird Rants here in Dr. Miles. I was disappointed that Jon Doble gave up the blogging thing this season but it’s always good to see what he has to say on Twitter.
All right, three posts in the bag! We’re just about halfway through and there are a lot of familiar names coming up!
