30 Interesting Athlete First Tweets

In case you didn't know this already, Twitter released a tool on Thursday that allowed people to type in Twitter handles and see what certain people's first tweets were. While I was looking through many athletes' first tweets, I picked out the 30 most interesting -- or as close to interesting as possible.

Some of these will make you laugh while others will make you shake your head. Enjoy.

Honorable Mention: Roberto Luongo

It is unknown whether this is Luongo's actual Twitter account or not, but his teammates mention this handle from time to time. Pretty witty account.
