2012 was a great year in sports. There were a lot of interesting moments and memorable games. However, it was also a great year for Twitter. Everyone and their mother seemed to join the web service, including our favorite athletes. That is why we are bringing you a list of the 20 hottest female athletes that were on Twitter in 2012. It may seem a bit strange, but you are going to love this list.

If you ever needed to get more hot chicks in your Twitter feed, this is the list for you. There are all sorts of athletes in here from a lot of different sports. Not only are they hot, they are also quite interesting online. While some of them have the standard athlete feed full of inspirational messages, others actually engage with the people that follow them. That is what makes their Twitter game so much better than a lot of other people that use the service.

If your feed needs to be spiced up a bit, just follow some of the beauties on the list. They will be a great addition to any feed that is out there. It may take some time to get used to seeing them pop up in your tweets, but I bet that you will not be complaining about it. It never hurts to add some beautiful athletes to your life. If it did, a lot of use would be in constant pain.

If you feel that there are athletes that we need to add in to the list, let us know in the comment section. There is always room to do more things like this and the more athletes that we end up having, the better it is for all of us.

And with that, let us get on to the list. 2012 may be drawing to a close, but these athletes left their mark on Twitter in that time frame. I think we can all be thankful for that development.

Tobin Heath


Nothing wrong with bringing home a gold medal. Heath may not have been the most important cog on the team, but she did her part. Give her a follow if you feel patriotic.


3 of 30

Lolo Jones


Yeah, it was quite the year for Lolo. She made the media tours, she ended up having a crying breakdown on the today show and she inadvertently made fun of Eric LeGrand. A must follow.

Candace Parker

Jayne Kamin-Ocnea-USA Today Sports

Sheldon Williams will always be the best example of a man outkicking his coverage. Parker could probably beat him in basketball as well. Not sure who that says more about.


5 of 30

Allyson Felix

Kirby Lee-USA Today Sports

2012 was very interesting for Felix. She was involved in the big track controversy involving a race-off that never ended up happening. Might want to keep tabs on her Twitter just in case.


6 of 30

Elena Delle Donne

della donne
Nelson Chenault USA TODAY SPORTS

Delle Donne is an absolute wizard on the basketball court. She ends up getting triple-teamed most games and she still finds her shot. Simply incredible. She's also great with the Twitter game.


7 of 30

Hope Solo

Mark J. Rebilas-USA Today Sports

Hope Solo has been one of the many faces that have represented U.S. women's soccer and that's a good thing.


8 of 30

Kim Glass


Silver medalists are always a fun follow. Although Glass did not make the team in 2012 (which is strange), she still has reasons to be followed. America and all that.


9 of 30

Gina Carano


She doesn't tweet much, but you should still follow. The rise of MMA is continuing and female fighters are getting more exposure by the day. Never knew when she's going to blow up.


10 of 30

Angela Rypien


Rypien provides tons of entertainment on the Twitter machine. She's probably better at quarterback than her dad as well. Then again, we aren't saying a lot with that.


11 of 30

Caroline Wozniacki


One member of one of the best power couples in sports, Wozniacki is also great online. If she can get her Twitter game to match her tennis game, no one is going to be able to stop her.


12 of 30

Michelle Waterson


More MMA in your life probably doesn't hurt, either. Waterson is a rising star in the ultimate fighting game so she's going to be one to watch in the coming months and years. Not like that is a bad thing.


13 of 30

Miesha Tate


She certainly loves Twitter. She also loves fighting and her upcoming fight against Ronda Rousey is going to be one that we need to watch.


14 of 30

Amber and Angela Cope


Only one not following these two in the near future is Kevin Harvick. The online feud that the two had with the driver started on Twitter and it really never stopped. It could fire back up at any time.


15 of 30

Alana Blanchard


Always need some surfing news in your life. Blanchard is one of the best in the business when it comes to that and her Twitter also brings some of the excitement of the waves.


16 of 30

Natalie Gulbis

Lauren Mackson-USA Today Sports

Never an excuse not to follow Gulbis. She's great on the golf course and she's great looking. That sounds like ample reason to follow.


17 of 30

Danica Patrick

Jerome Miron-USA Today Sports

Good year in racing, better year in Twitter. Patrick will be making the jump to the top series in NASCAR full time in 2013, so she's going to be a must follow for racing fans everywhere.


18 of 30

Ronda Rousey

Gary A. Vasquez

The first female in UFC really turned some heads in 2012. Her upcoming fight with the previously mentioned Tate will be one that even casual fans tune into. That is when you know you have drawing power.


19 of 30

Stephanie Rice

Kirby Lee-USA Today Sports

Rice was in a lot of headlines, so it's good to keep up with her Twitter. You never know, she might end up tweeting about Kobe Bryant. Now that would cause a stir.


20 of 30

Lindsey Vonn

Jack Gruber-USA Today Sports

Vonn is always bringing the entertainment online, which she has to do to match her entertainment offline. I think she's over her Tebow craze by now, but you never know. That's why you have to keep tabs on her.


21 of 30

Alex Morgan

Do you even need a reason to follow Morgan? If you do, she's a gold medalist with a knack for scoring key goals. She's also extremely attractive. There's two reasons for you.

Kyle Terada-USA Today Sports

This former Olympic gymnast is certainly worth a follower on Twitter.

Daniel Shirey-USA Today Sports

Amanda Beard has won seven Olympic medals during her time in the pool.

Kevin Hoffman-USA Today Sports

Paula Creamer is a female golfer, who is certainly worth a follow on Twitter.


28 of 30

Misty May-Treanor

Christopher Hanewinckel-USA Today Sports

A beach volleyball star that's on Twitter, follow her.

Matt Ryerson-USA Today Sports

Another Olympic swimmer, another good-looking female athlete to follow on Twitter.

Maria Sharapova is obviously included in this list.
