Who is Dov Kleiman? NFL aggregator who reportedly sold his 290,000 followers Twitter account

Dov Kleiman means different things to different people, depending on which side of the spectrum you fall on. For NFL fans, he's a reliable source for researched news on social media, while for high-profile NFL journalists, he's probably less appreciated for his aggregator ways.

Who is Dov Kleiman?

According to the New York Times, Dov Kleiman is an Israeli resident in his early 30s. Kleiman has been a full-time contributor for BroBible since 2009 and has also done some work for Outkick.

Kleiman's method is to rewrite tweets from reliable NFL journalists and post them on X (formerly known as Twitter) with the sources tucked in at the end. This unorthodox method has earned him almost 300,000 followers on the platform and notoriety among his peers.

Kleiman is followed by NFL reporting royalty such as Adam Schefter, Albert Breer, Chris Mortensen, Dianna Russini and Ian Rapoport. While not everyone is a fan of his methods, it's hard to argue against their effectiveness.

Kleiman racks up millions of impressions per post, and his account remains one of the fastest-growing among social media aggregators.

Did Dov Kleiman sell his Twitter account?

Following a sensationally botched piece of reporting by Kleiman congratulating Raiders owner Mark Davis and his "girlfriend" on her pregnancy, there have been rumors that Kleiman recently sold his 290,000-follower account.

Barstool Sports' Jack McGuire further populated these rumors, posting that Kleiman sold his account "this past season."

Following the rumors, Front Office Sports asked Kleiman about the validity of the claims. Kleiman responded,

"Respectfully, I can't comment on that Twitter account."

In an extensive report about the likely sale of Kleiman's account, Front Office Sports reports that Snapback Sports founder and CEO Jack Settleman received a direct message in December from Kleiman seeking $75,000 for the account. When Settleman declined, Kleiman countered with a lower figure.

Settleman still passed on the deal but stated that Kleiman sold his X account earlier in 2024 for around $75,000. Two other figures in the NFL aggregator community confirmed that statement.

Trading accounts for money could result in a permanent ban from X, so it's unlikely that we'll ever get confirmation from Dov Kleiman.
