Here is a selection of Twitter accounts you should follow if you cheer for the Jackets.

The Columbus Blue Jackets opened their season (with a win!) on Oct 9. To celebrate, we put together a Blue Jackets Season Preview package in our October issue, on newsstands now. You'll find info on the players to watch, where to watch and the story behind the popular hashtag #WeAreThe5thLine.

True to Columbus, the Blue Jackets and individual players have official and unofficial fan groups galore. Twitter is a great place to get to know them and to keep up with the team in other ways. Here is a selection of Twitter accounts you should follow if you cheer for the Jackets.-Kristen Schmidt
