Sports Journalism is a precise art and there are ways in which you can make your own life easier when trying to focus your efforts into being the best possible sports journalist you can be. Each journalist will have their own little cheats and tips on how to get ahead of the game and make sure your articles are the best and most accurate that they can be. A helping hand, therefore, for doing this is making sure that you’re viewing the right accounts that will help you as much as possible on social networking sites- especially Twitter.

Focusing mainly on football journalists, I’ve quickly selected the 10 accounts that I’d most recommend you follow. Each account is helpful in its own way, either with news, views, or for humour. This is a personal view on which twitter accounts football journalists must follow and if you do have any suggestions of your own then please leave them in the comments and I’ll give them a look.

The 10 accounts I have chosen have millions of followers so someone else clearly agrees with me…

10. Sky Sports News – @SkySportsNews – 2,108,800 followers

The Sky Sports News account is definitely on the ball when it comes to reporting breaking news- including results and reports. I personally follow Sky Sports News because they are usually the best for breaking news stories.

Sky Sports also have their own dedicated accounts for various sports including @SkyFootball and @SkyCricket. This makes it easy to distinguish between what is necessary and what isn’t when using Sky as a source of information. The general news account however is probably better for both casual journalism and for your own personal use. Sky Sports News comes highly recommended.
