15. (15). Kansas City Wizards: 205 (+25)
16. (16). Colorado Rapids: 170 (+26)

There was a clear winner this month and it was Toronto FC, where ASN’s designated twitterer has been anything but passive. TFC booked the most number of new followers (65) of anybody and leaped into fourth place at the expense of the Chicago Fire. That’s the good news. The bad news for them is the team they trail for third place, the New York Red Bulls, added the second-most number of followers, 51. If New York keeps it up, it may close to the Seattle Sounders, whose growth has slowed somewhat in recent months. The Columbus Crew also had a very productive period, adding 41 followers to leapfrog the anemic New England Revolution into ninth place. Lower down on the table, we were glad to see strong growth in Colorado and Kansas City, while Philadelphia continues its upward march, albeit with just a little more than half the new followers of last time.

There are obvious many factors affecting the number of followers each team has. What are the biggest ones, in your opinion?
