The Charlotte Hornets will be tipping off the season Wednesday night against the Cleveland Cavaliers. This being my first year covering the Hornets, I wanted to lean on some folks to help me get started. I’ve discovered many great personalities within the Charlotte Hornets Twitter world. These are the Twitter accounts you should follow for the latest Hornets news and gossip.
Sam Perley (@sam_perley)
Perley is the first person I found when researching who to follow for Charlotte Hornets news. Perley is a writer for the Charlotte Hornets official website and is a great follow for live-tweeting during the Hornets game. If you want to read up on the Hornets preseason to prepare you for the regular season, definitely check out Perley’s Twitter.
Rick Bonnell (@rick_bonnell)
Bonnell immediately won me over with his Twitter bio. “Survived 7-59 Bobcats with some grace and sanity.” Any person who can sit through a 7-59 season from a dead franchise deserves every prize in NBA journalism. Bonnell recently wrote an article on Gordon Hayward that any basketball fan should check out over at the Charlotte Observer. While all Charlotte Hornets fans feel the pain of past failures, Bonnell does an excellent job describing that pain. Give him a follow.
Ashley ShahAhmadi (@ashahahmadi)
Ashley covers the Hornets for Fox Sports. She recently did a great sit down interview with new Hornet LaMelo Ball that you should go check out. Follow Ashley and don’t miss her during the coverage of Charlotte’s opening night.

Sombrero Man (@FKNTORO)
Last, but certainly not least, Sombrero Man is a must-follow for any Charlotte Hornets fan. Even through Twitter you can feel his energy. When fans are allowed back into Spectrum, Sombrero Man has to be first in line. Hornets fans, make sure to give our guy a follow.
There it is Hornets fans. This is the list of who to follow for all your Hornets needs. I’m ready for opening night and I know these folks are too. New year, new team. Let’s hope the Hornets come home with the W.
Follow me on Twitter @tylerreed93, for more stories on the Charlotte Hornets, and more NBA news. Please leave comments and tell me how bad I suck at writing about sports and how you don’t care about the Hornets. Let’s have some fun with this!
