There are tons of Padres fans on Twitter, and more are signing up every day. For both new users and Twitter veterans, we put together a quick list of must-follow Padres accounts – these writers, players and fans are excellent sources of news and interesting Padres content.
1. Jedd Gyorko, @JGyorko05
Gyorko is a player Padres fans will want to follow (if they aren't doing so already). Gyorko will be with San Diego for years to come, so he's definitely a player worth following. We all know the guy we see on the field, but Gyorko’s Twitter feed gives us a taste of the kind of guy he is away from the diamond. Fans always enjoy seeing a more personal side of their favorite players and love the opportunity to connect with them, and Twitter makes it possible all in one place.
2. Huston Street @HustonStreet
This Padres pitcher is infamous for posting twitpics, and lots of 'em. No complaints here - these are fun because you get to see behind-the-scenes pictures of a variety of different Padres. These pictures also show another side of the players, and really help fans get to know who they are off the field.
3. Yasmani Grandal @YazmanianDVL08
This Padres catcher definitely stays on top of his Twitter game. He's absolutely hilarious, and there's always something good to see on his feed.
4. Mike Dee @PadresMikeDee
Mike Dee is the President and CEO of the San Diego Padres, and he obviously provides worthwhile information about all things Padres. In his bio on Twitter he says he's “making sure we allow our fans as much access as possible to the organization”. Dee’s tweets and twitpics make you feel as though you're a part of the Padres organization, and what fan wouldn’t want that?

If you don’t follow Corey, you’re doing it wrong. He has been covering for the Padres for eight years, and his tweets are going to provide you with exclusive information, injury updates, and interview insights.
6. Friar Blue @FriarBlueBalls
Friar Blue reps the Padres all day every day - He's as a committed fan as I’ve ever seen. His tweets consist of nothing but love for the Padres, and what fan wouldn’t want to follow someone like that? His blue friar outfit is just another awesome attribute of his electrifying personality.
