The Funniest Tweets By The Athletes Of Twitteronia
Anyway, since all this stuff is public, we thought we'd go back and look at the some of the more entertaining tweets by pro athletes on Twitter. So here we go.
There's a case to be made that Twitter was actually made specifically for Shaq (THE_REAL_SHAQ). He tweets almost non-stop and has amassed a small country's worth of followers. You may remember that Shaq sent out a tweet a few weeks back telling people to come visit him at a diner where he was eating lunch, and two guys showed up.
Their meeting led to what's probably the most epic tweet of all time by anyone on Twitter:
Shaq's even at the point where he's telling jokes on Twitter:
And possibly even weirder than that, he's even letting you know that you can touch him for free tickets:
Meanwhile, there are other athletes who are the exact opposite of Shaq, like Eli Manning (elimanning). In other words, they suck, as evidenced by this thrilling Eli update:
Michael Phelps (Michael_Phelps) interestingly gave us warning signs that he was a pothead long before that bong photo was taken in South Carolina:
Andrew Bogut (AndrewMBogut) revealed that he's a fan of Michael Vick.
Alexander Ovechkin (ovi8) is either a huge Yoda fan or needs some work on his English, as evidenced by this exchange:
Tyson Chandler (tysonchandler) is much, much less cool than I ever imagined:
He also clearly doesn't get the 140 character limit. I bet going to college would have helped that.
Speaking of strange music choices, I never knew Chris Bosh (chrisbosh) was so down with Coldplay.
Or watched such awful movies.
Charlie Villenueva (CV31) spends a lot of his time talking with Bogut, but he's also apparently something of a computer nerd, as he smacks down Steve Nash (realstevenash) in regards to tech talk.
Charlie's actually right, too, proving once again how little Canadians know.
Pete Carroll (PeteCarroll) is also one hell of a Twitterer, I assume because there's some recruiting loophole involved. Although, I'm not sure a tweet like this would make me want to attend USC:
Natalie Gulbis (natalie_gulbis) found the perfect way to get me to hate her:
And she also went through a Stephen A. Smith stage for a brief time period.
Lance Armstrong (lancearmstrong) apparently tweets with his ass:
Erin Andrews (erinandrews) is also on Twitter.
Although apparently everyone's been hard on her since she hasn't been on in forever. Nice going, jerks.
And lastly, some guys simply shoot the straight truth, just like Chris Cooley (thecooleyzone).
WTF indeed, Chris.
