The Chicago Bulls are a team that gets around.

Dating back to the Jordan era that delivered the franchise's only six championships in its history, the Bulls are a popular franchise.

As the team's popularity grew, Derrick Rose took over the media attention as the league's youngest ever MVP. Now, DeMar DeRozan and Zach LaVine lead a growing team through the digital age.

The Bulls are a in the third largest city in the country with one of the youngest fan bases a sport could offer. With that, they are the 20th most followed professional sports team in the world on Twitter.

They come in as the third-highest followed team in the NBA behind the Los Angeles Lakers and the Golden State Warriors. They also rank above all other Chicago sports teams -- the Chicago Cubs (40th), Blackhawks (47th) and Bears (67th). The White Sox did not make the top-100 list.

The team has north of 4.5 million followers on Twitter, according to Zoomph.
