How would you rank the Top 5, Top 10, or Top 20?

Of that 150 or so, just over half are directly employed by the Twins or one of their minor league affiliates, either front office staff or players in the Twins organization.
Of the remaining 70ish accounts, about 20-25 are what I would classify as "professional media," in that their primary job is to cover the Twins and/or their affiliates (or that was their job when I initially followed them and I just haven't unfollowed them even though they may no longer have that job). Some of these writers do have other beats to cover during the baseball offseason, of course.
The remaining 45 or so accounts are what I would consider Twins fans active to some degree on social media. Some are not very active at all. Some are extremely active, to the point of maintaining or regularly contributing to active Twins-based blogs.
Obviously, there are some people on the list that could arguably fall in to either the "professional" or "fans" category. Several of the "fans," make a buck or two from their writing about the Twins, but it's not their primary means of feeding themselves. This would include the Twins Daily folks and, I suppose, even myself.
I didn't try to rank anyone, but it was a bit eye-opening to realize just how active the Twins social media contingent is because this list is far from exhaustive. I would bet that my "follow" list of 200 or so accounts is pretty small by most standards within this community.
