Hornets Twitter: Best Hornets Twitter Accounts to Follow

Hornets Twitter: The Best Accounts to Follow

Die-hard Hornets fans have been through a lot. Outside of a few playoff runs during the original Hornets iteration in the 90’s, this fanbase has a lot to (rightfully) complain about. Naturally, Hornets Twitter can get dark at times, but with a talented young core it’s been a fun place the past couple of seasons.

To help you find the best accounts and tune out the noise, I’ve curated a list of some of the best accounts (besides myself, @mike_hoopsocial – survivor of the 7-win Bobcats season) to follow on Hornets Twitter. Keep in mind that these are not rankings and the accounts were not listed in any particular order.
