Norwich City fans also finish second in the league, and beat Ipswich Town again

Norwich City's online supporters have followed their team's success this season and finished in second place in the Football League.

This league table was not judged on football ability however, but by how many supporters the club has on Twitter.

It is not a completely conclusive list but a light-hearted look at the social networking website by the Football League's official website.

It has been judged on how many followers each of the 72 Football league club's - which does not include the Premier League - official Twitter accounts had at the end of the 2010/11 season, and sees City fans finish in second place.

Nottingham Forest top the league with 9,815 people following the @Official_NFFC account and next up is the Canaries in second with 8,545 followers of @norwichcityfc.

It sees City hold off the challenge of League One big boys Sheffield Wednesday and Southampton in third and fourth place, with 7,770 and 7,321 followers respectively.

It is another victory over local rivals Ipswich Town for City again also - following 4-1 and 5-1 triumphs on the pitch this season - as the Tractor Boys do not have an official account and so finish down in joint-last position with no followers.
