All 32 NFL teams have verified (that little blue check-mark) accounts on twitter. Instead of the boring, traditional power ranking pieces, let's see which NFL teams rule the twitterverse.
Although the NFL is a very popular sport in America, no verified NFL twitter handle has over a million followers. I guess you can say that each city or area of the country is dedicated to one particular team, which is why it's so balanced.
Let's take a look at which NFL team holds the top spot on twitter, and which teams needs to seriously step their social media game up.
The power rankings are based on twitter followers and also each team's global twitter ranking.

The Cowboys are supposedly "America's team," but the Patriots have claimed the top spot as the most popular NFL team on twitter. Surprisingly, the Arizona Cardinals are the least followed team on twitter with only 74K followers.
