With offense to OnMilwaukee intended, we're doing a Top 100 list. Why? For the same reason OnMilwaukee does them: they're an easy, cheap, half-a**ed way to get pageviews.
"Hey everybody, look! We made a list and you're on it!"
And let's face it, we have just as much, if not more sports credibility than OnMilwaukee. Wagner? Begel? HAHAHAHAHA.
This list is compiled of the top 100 people on Twitter. Since we're (allegedly) a Marquette Basketball blog, it leans heavily on Marquette athletics. But other cool Milwaukee and Wisconsin people are on this list, too. We don't discriminate, except against Badger fans.
No way we were going to hyperlink ever person on this list. That would require a bit of work and we were told there would be no work and besides, you're all very smart people.
