B-ref updates: Player/team twitter accounts

Wanna follow all the twitter accounts for everyone on the 40 man roster of the team of your choice?  Sean Forman has done the work for you.  Here’s the Yankees, for example. 

Also, in other B-ref update news, they’ve improved the Play Index - it now does splits searches for players and teams. Here’s the pitchers who allowed the most career bases-loaded walks.  I could’ve guessed Nolan Ryan would be #3, but who knew that Ryan Demspter would be #3?

Forman does everything.

That last link doesn't work. I think you're looking for this.

Kenny Rogers is tied for sixth, and that's not even counting the postseason.

I noticed this yesterday and didn't click on it. But it seems like a good idea for those who are into following twitter etc.

I'd have guessed Kenny Rogers as #1!

Finally! I've been waiting for split searches for probably 5 years.
