You MUST follow us on Twitter... So says the Bible of Baseball

The Sporting News has released a list of "must follow" Twitter accounts. I think you know where this is going.

Thomas J. Russo-USA TODAY Sports

As a Padres fan, if you were going to follow only one baseballTwitter account, you should really follow Corey Brock at @FollowThePadres. But if you were going to follow two or even say, two-hundred Twitter accounts, then you should absolutely, without a doubt follow us on Twitter.

Some of you might be saying, "Oh this is just you shilling for your stupid Twitter account where you tell bad jokes and misinform people about the Padres", but no, actually it isn't!

This is us telling you that The Sporting News, that's right, the Bible of Baseball has decreed that Gaslamp Ball must be followed on Twitter.

The Bible.

That's like if it were a real bible telling you that you ought to do something, well by golly, you do it. Or you get into lengthy wars over exactly what it means to do what the bible is telling you to do.

Lucky for you, in this case, it's very clear. You need to follow us on Twitter.

If you don't know what Twitter is, I'll tell you, it's something you need to do so you can follow us more proper. Sometimes we talk to Twitter as if it's the Internet. Sometimes we go on there and just randomly spew facts and figures and etc. Sometimes, jbox flirts with girls. It's amaze.

I'll oftentimes go to Twitter and talk about the game and wait and see if the response is good enough that it warrants me making a comment in a Game Thread using the same joke. And vice versa. It's like the culmination of Gaslamp Ball funny. Gaslamp Ball's Twitter account is to Gaslamp Ball what ketchup is to macaroni and cheese. You think you don't need it, but it makes the whole thing something else that you don't want.

So go and do it before tomorrow's game. So hath the good book said it shall come to be and so it shall become.

UPDATE: And actually... Why don't you comment in the comments with your Twitter account and somebody will add all of those Twitter accounts to the Gaslamp Ball Wiki (something not unlike a supplemental religious text to Gaslamp Ball) and we'll all follow each other and be followed and it'll be a thing. OMG. Great. Idea.
