Top ten most popular athletes who use Twitter

Will Leitch's fine profile on the dudes that started Twitter got us thinking about what athletes use it. Twitter would seem to be perfect for athletes: they can reach their fans quickly and conveniently without going through a reporter, and it doesn't take nearly as much time or effort as maintaining a blog. Here are the top ten most popular athletes on Twitter.

UPDATE: Alas, it seems the good folks at Coed Magazine did a similar post about a month ago. Don't want to make it seem like we're stealin' their idea or anything, so go check out that list, too. They've got some people we don't have, and vice versa.

This might be the crappiest list you guys have had in a while... I live in the Gold Coast, I don't give a fuck about Kerry Rhodes. Try again tomorrow.

How about a list informing us which music downloading system players use the most?

Or what pubic hair style, on women, is adored by players from the Padres, Pirates and Phillies?

No,no,no. I got it.

What the top ten places Alex Rodriguez injected steroids into his body were.

Or if he even had a liquid solution. Maybe it was just in the pill form.

Boo on this list. Really poor effort.

Wait. The Top Ten Players Who Have Eaten Sunflowers Seeds on the Ball Diamond.

Couldn't agree more you lazy bastard.

What a cheap way to fill space.

Ricky, come on, more posts like this shit and you guys won't be a credible site anymore. If you aren't creative enough to think of a list, or don't know how to write, leave the site. This was probably the worst post ever since i've been following this site. And by the way I'm not the same anonymous person who left any of those earlier comments.
