Here Are the Philadelphians Who Made SI’s “Twitter 100” List
Sports Illustrated has published its list of the Top 100 Twitter users in sports — and the list has a few Philadelphia entries:
• Kobe Bryant
SI says: “As real as it gets for an NBA superstar.”

SI says: “If you want to invest in a Futures pick for Twitter, we’d advise you to ride with the Little League World Series star and Sports Illustrated cover kid.”

SI says: “Hilariously attempted to convince LeBron James to become his teammate and Kim Kardashian to become his girlfriend. Failed at both, but hasn’t lost his spirit.”

Basically Philadelphia’s online-only version of Batman: he shuts down trolls, solves hate crimes and chooses to remain anonymous.
Hey kids, Fan Since O'Nine here. You know that thing you like? Well (lights cigarette) it's lame.

Only one person on this list is on Drew Lazor’s list of the 10 best Philadelphia sports figures on Twitter, though. Can you guess which one?
