Bucs on Twitter: Which players are you following?

With all the comings and goings at One Buc Place this offseason, we figured it was a good time to update the long list of Bucs players with accounts on Twitter -- there are 66 with active accounts, and you can follow them all (well, almost all) on one handy timeline here. We haven't included players with long-dormant accounts -- Jamon Meredith and Lavelle Hawkins, for instance, both have accounts but haven't tweeted since 2010.

Amassing a Twitter following is a combination of stardom and tweeting things interesting enough that people want to follow. You can follow our Bucs writers on Twitter at @NFLstroud@gregauman and @MBakerTBTimes. But here are the 20 Bucs players on Twitter with the biggest followings -- it's worth noting that safety Dashon Goldson has 10 times as many as his next closest teammate. And rookie Mike Evans was big enough at Texas A&M that he's sixth on the list despite not taking a single snap in the NFL yet. Here you go ...

1. Dashon Goldson (968,285)

2. Major Wright (91,470)

3. Da'Quan Bowers (73,617)
