2011 Primer: Part 3 (Twitter Extravaganza)

We are less than 2 weeks away from Spring Training and I can feel the crazy Space Coast wind on my face already. We have just two parts remaining, and today's post is going to focus on a particular social-networking site that some of you swear by and others swear at, Twitter. I have found that Twitter is one of the best, yet most frustrating, ways of conveying news. So here is a brief list of those that we believe are must-follows for any MLB fan, Nats included.
