Sports Illustrated's Twitter 100

For Sports Illustrated's fourth annual Twitter 100, we've compiled a list of people and organizations to follow for news, information and entertainment from the sports world.

As usual, we kept SI staffers off the list to keep it ever-so-slightly less subjective, but you can find us here, and check out our main account at @SINow.

Did we screw up and miss a must-follow? Tweet and tell us with the hashtag #SITwitter100.
