With the NFL’s first social media push, teams will have a much-needed tool to get players talking about the game on social media.
But how do they get the conversation going?
In a series of articles for ESPN, ESPN Insider’s Matt Bowen and NFL Media’s Jason La Canfora delve into the topic, and what it means for players and their fans.
First, the facts:The NFL is on track to hit 200 million followers in the next few months.
For teams like the Dallas Cowboys, it’s a new high, but for others like the Los Angeles Rams and Arizona Cardinals, the number could rise even higher.
The NFL’s official Twitter account has 1.7 million followers, according to NFL Media, but that number is not necessarily representative of how many players use the platform.
The majority of those players have over 1 million Twitter followers, Bowen said.
That means they have more than 40 percent of Twitter users.
For those teams that have a large amount of fans, there could be more to get to, he said.
The Cowboys have one of the most active Twitter accounts in the NFL, but the Cowboys don’t have many fans.
They’re more interested in what the Cowboys are doing than what’s happening on the field.
The Rams and Cardinals have two active Twitter followers but only about 12 percent of their fans follow them, Bowen noted.
The Rams and Bears have about 3 percent and 3 percent of fans on Twitter, respectively.
Both have active Twitter teams, but it’s the Bears that have more followers than the Rams.
The Chargers have the third-largest Twitter following in the league behind the Rams and the Broncos.
They have more fans than the Chargers and the Cowboys, but they don’t get a lot of attention from the media.
The Broncos have about 8 percent of its followers following the Broncos, and only about 1 percent follow the Chargers.
The Broncos have more active Twitter fans than all but two of the NFL teams, according the league.
The Raiders are also one of only four teams that has active Twitter and Facebook accounts, according that league.
The Raiders account has about 1.8 million followers and has about 4.5 million Twitter fans, according Bowen.
The Twitter accounts for the other teams are inactive.
The teams’ social media efforts are not without their challenges, however.
The San Francisco 49ers have an active Twitter account, but not many fans follow the team.
The team has about 9,000 Twitter followers.
The Los Angeles Chargers have about 1 million fans on the team, and the team has 5.5 percent of those fans following the team on Twitter.
The Cleveland Browns have only about 4,000 fans following them on Twitter and don’t follow many of the teams on Twitter either.
