Toronto Maple Leafs Add 375,000+ Fans on Twitter in One Year

Over the past year, the Toronto Maple Leafs have gained more than 375,000 followers on Twitter.

The increase in followers could be due to all-star and Calder Trophy winner Auston Matthews. It could also be due to the fact that the team made the playoffs last year after an incredible season.

In comparison with one of their original rivals, the Toronto Maple Leafs have 1.13x more followers than the Montreal  Canadians and gained 1.12x more followers than the Montreal Canadians in the past 12 months.

The most followed Maple Leafs players are three “vets” on the team, stealing the show from @Marner93 and @AM34:

  1. James van Riemsdyk, Toronto Maple Leafs (@JVReemer21)
  2. Nazem Kadri, Toronto Maple Leafs (@43_Kadri)
  3. Tyler Bozak, Toronto Maple Leafs (@Bozie42)

However, @Marner93, @AM34 and @wmnylander were among the top ten most mentioned players on Canadian teams during the 2016/2017 season.
