The Ultimate Follow Friday (#FF) Twitter Guide for Poker Players

Daniel Negreanu

We've decided to take #FF (Follow Friday) to whole new level with a poker-focused list of some of the best Twitter feeds to follow throughout the World Series of Poker. While there is plenty of coverage of poker’s most prestigious tournament series, some of the best insight into the action and off-the-felt happenings inside the Rio comes from Twitter.

Who has the best Twitter feed? While the answer will be different for everyone, we went right to source and posed the question both to players and the PokerNews team. Only five people made the list on both the players and PokerNews team responses. Enjoy your #FF!
