In a world of unjustified authoritative Tweets and people fooling their adult selves into hyper-seriousness, it is always refreshing to see people being funny and sarcastic on Twitter. Of course there are the accounts that everyone knows (professional athletes, @sportsguy33, etc), but I wanted to focus on some great sports Tweeters that you might not be following already.
Here are some of my favorites, along with some favorites from @SeatGeek's followers on Twitter.
Why You Should Follow: @drubner is an ESPN Road Trip Host, ESPYs Co-Producer and provides great Game Day coverage and live coverage from college campuses around the country. And of course, he has some humor in his stream.
Why You Should Follow: @Nastinchka's comedic range on Twitter extends far beyond just sports. Don't let the arguably excessive use of capitalization fool you, she's got her stuff down solid.
Why You Should Follow: Associate editor, SB Nation. Co-founder, The Dugout. Covers multiple sports, especially MLB/NFL. Funny. Prolific blogger, humorous thought experiments...
Why You Should Follow: He had me at "I get drunk and the talk about..." I mean there is really no way that could end badly. And then to top it all off with a bio pick chugging a canned beer and MMA coverage...yessir.
Why You Should Follow: @EliFromBrooklyn provides humor by himself, but RTs and shares some really funny stuff so there is always something entertaining coming through the stream.
Bonus: Might be following, but still funny
Why You Should Follow: His background is him exposing his tattooed(?) mid-section with Snooki myspace pose pointing towards said mid-section.
