Furthermore, the Dodgers were the most tweeted about MLB team. They are followed by the Yankees, Mets, Astros, Braves, Boston Red Sox, San Diego Padres, Chicago White Sox, Philadelphia Phillies and Chicago Cubs.

The respective lists only factor in tweets from the United States. Still, it isn’t surprising to see teams from the two largest markets — New York and L.A. — prominently featured in the rankings.
