Most popular Australian (and New Zealand) netball related Twitter accounts (January 20)

This entry was posted by Laura on Thursday, 20 January, 2011 at

The following is a list of the most popular Australian and New Zealand related Twitter accounts. The list also includes world related accounts. If anyone is missing, please comment to let me know. I spent about a half hour searching for accounts I was missing today and this may not be as comprehensive as I thought.  If any of my league, teams and description labels are off or are not as accurate as they could be, please comment to let me know.

Any surprises in terms of ranking on this list?

I’ve added bendunn43, NetballCoach, and BallsNGiggles to my list for future monitoring.

If there are any additional accounts I’m missing, let me know. Any accounts added will appear on versions of most popular women’s list and most popular AU/NZ sport general list.

    NetballNZ is not Netball New Zealand’s offical Tweeter – MyNetballNZ is

  • LauraH

    Fixed up the label. :)

  • Netballmag

    netballmag is an independent publication for Australian and New Zealand Audiences primarily, we are not currently a member of any association. Thanks for the list.

  • LauraH

    Sort of fixed by changing the team label. I need some league label to make it findable on my list for sorting purposes. :)

  • Kelly West

    Loads of omissions in this list. They are all official related – how about some listings of regular people, players, coaches and umpires? They aren’t hard to find!

  • LauraH

    Define hard to find. :)

    Regular fans I’ve tried to avoid including on my most popular lists just because it is harder to say why people may follow those people, hard to attribute the motives of following because their followers were interested in their sport related content. It is much easier to make that assumption when it comes to more visible players, club, league, federations and national team accounts.

    I’ve had a hard time finding coaches, umpires and players outside the list there. I’ve mostly been finding accounts by checking to see which lists some one on that list appears in, then checking those lists to see who I am missing.

    If you have any suggestions for who I am missing or any lists to get me started, I’d be happy to do that. I’m just not a huge netball fan (American, in Canberra) and I’m at a real loss sometimes where to begin in this area.

  • Netballmag

    Thanks, I would lable ANZ Champs as it covers both Aus and NZ for the League. (your list though so your say on how you manage it)

  • LauraH

    Fixed to say ANZ Championship. :) I’ve had similar labeling problems with other sports like surfing. :/

  • Netballmag

    Thanks for that, not easy keeping a list up to date, how often will you publish this one?

  • LauraH

    If you’re interested in this list, I can try to post it on a regular basis. Normally, my netball related information tends to get buried in this list, which I post once every two weeks or so. I’ve just been a bit lax in doing that.

  • Netballmag

    Thanks, what tags on twitter do you use when this list is posted so I can add to my search list.

  • LauraH

    The women’s list? I probably use #anzchampionship, #wleague, #wnbl .
