11 Twitter Accounts Every Angels Fan Should Be Following

Twitter is one social media outlet that can be majorly useful to sports fans trying to stay up-to-date on their favorite teams. These 11 accounts are great follows for any Angels fan - with .

Current Players:

Mike Trout @Trouty20

Mike Trout is the best player in baseball, and for that reason alone should be enough to follow him. Trout doesn't exactly blow you away with insightful tweets, but he does know how to pay his respects to the game he loves.

CJ Wilson @str8edgeracer

CJ spends a lot of time on twitter talking about his charities, which is pretty cool, but there's more to his Twitter than that. Wilson is also somebody who retweets things a lot, so if you're looking for a retweet from an MLB player, look no farther than Wilson. Lastly, Wilson is an adrenaline junkie and likes to post pictures and videos from his many ventures into car racing. They make for some very entertaining moments behind the scenes of his life.

Dane De La Rosa @Daner13

Dane likes to support his other MLB players. If you look at his retweets, you can tell that he's just a young guy trying to make it in baseball. He tends to support other players talking about making it to the majors or talking about signing their first contracts. Dane seems like the kind of guy you would want in a clubhouse - he's supportive of a ton of people, so why don't you be supportive and follow him?

Angels Journalists:

Alden Gonzalez @Alden_Gonzalez

If you want to learn about anything Angels, Alden is the man to follow. He constantly tweets out anything he can find about Angels players or prospects. Gonzalez even spends some games live-tweeting major events. Always helpful if any fan needs to know what is happening, Gonzalez gives you everything you'd want in a beat writer from MLB.com.

David Saltzer @DaveSaltzer

Saltzer is a writer for Angelswin.com. He's just the kind of person you want to follow if you're a diehard Angels fan. Saltzer is definitely more biased than most writers, and it shows up in his tweeting...but sometimes as a fan, that's great to have. With an honest, insightful account focused on the Angels, Saltzer is a great follow.

Buster Olney @Buster_Olney

Olney is not really an Angels writer, as he covers the league in general, but he may be the most influential baseball writer out there. Olney is a writer for ESPN the Magazine, and if you've ever seen baseball coverage on ESPN, you've probably seen him. So why should Angels fans follow Olney? The best way to know how your team is doing is to know how the rest of the teams are doing, and Olney seems to cover every team in baseball. He's knowledgeable about all things baseball, and it's definitely a good idea to follow him.

Parody/Fan Accounts:

Did Mike Trout Homer @DidTroutHomer

This page is simply for the people who want to know if Mike Trout homered today. Obviously, that means that only about 3 or 4 tweets are sent out during any Angel game this season...but if you're a huge Trout fan it's always good to know how he did at the plate. Their twitter bio simply reads "probably."

L.A. Angels Baseball @LAAngelsBB

From a purely statistical standpoint, this is the best Angels twitter account to follow. This account will give you matchup possibilities for the current series, rapid reactions to any game, and let you know what else is happening in the AL West. If you want to know about a horrendous three-error play or Albert Pujols' pursuit of his 500th home run, this is the account to follow.

Halos Heaven @halosheaven

This account is absolutely incredible in terms of content. Halos Heaven will lead you to many other articles about the Angels, and they'll all be Angels biased (in a good way, of course). As an Angels fan, it's always more fun to get an in-depth, focused look at your team., and they also provide a game thread for each game that gives fans a play-by-play account of what's going on. This is definitely an important Twitter account for any and all Angels fans.

Not Jerry Dipoto @LAAngels_GM

Parody accounts can be quite funny. Not Jerry Dipoto focuses on what somebody thinks that Dipoto is thinking during Angels games and in everyday life. Like many parody accounts, it can occasionally venture into the NSFW side of things, but for the most part the tweets are just meant to be funny. Not Jerry Dipoto deserves a follow from Angel fans looking to laugh a little about their team.

Chat Angels @ChatLAAngels

We had to save the best for last. Chat Angels is everything you want from a Twitter account about the Angels, posting box scores from the previous game, articles about the Angels and news about the best team in baseball. If there is anything that you need to learn about the Angels, the Chat Angels Twitter account is a great place to start.
