Here’s something I noticed about newest Wizard Paul Pierce: he has more than 3 million Twitter followers.

That’s a lot. In fact, it’s more than the most popular Redskins player (RGIII), Caps player (Alex Ovechkin), Nats player (Bryce Harper) and D.C. United player (Eddie Johnson), combined.

Hey, here’s a chart!

We had some debate in the office about this, and decided that Kastles players — even those who don’t play all that often — would count. Ravens and Orioles players would not count. Neither would players turned media members (Chris Cooley), or players who have sort of retired even if not exactly officially (London Fletcher).

The chart covers D.C. athletes with more than 100,000 followers. Here are D.C. athletes with between 50,000 and 100,000 Twitter followers.

Sloane Stephens (Kastles) 87,600

Ali Krieger (Spirit) 86,200

Alfred Morris (Redskins) 85,700

Ryan Kerrigan (Redskins) 78,800

Kevin Seraphin (Wizards) 78,600

John Carlson (Capitals) 71,500

Denard Span (Nationals) 67,400

Drew Gooden (Wizards) 66,700

Martina Hingis (Kastles) 65,100

Marcin Gortat (Wizards) 57,200

Niles Paul (Redskins) 56,100

Ian Desmond (Nationals) 54,600

Jason Hatcher (Redskins) 53,400

Somewhere below that cut-off come fringe D.C. sports figures, Tyler Clippard, Randy Edsall, me and Ted Leonsis.
