For any sports fan, following their favorite athletes on Twitter is a must. Unfortunately, not all athlete twitter accounts are worth following, even if they're your favorite. Here are 25 athletes you must stay away from on that social media website.
Almost all of Tsonga's tweets are in French. Even from a visual standpoint, all you're getting is a bunch ordinary tennis stuff. Tsonga is a nice guy, but he's boring.
Rollins posts links to his Instagram account and a whole bunch of nothing tweets. He does respond to his fans, but that doesn't make up for the blandness that is his Twitter account.
Johnson tweets too much. Just because he's famous (or infamous?) is no reason to follow some scatterbrain who tweets every single meaningless thought that comes to his head. His humor is overrated, too.
If you're a Yankees fan, it's probably kind of too hard to not have a soft spot for Ken Singleton, who goes all the way back to the Phil Rizzuto days. But he starts off every single one of his tweets with "LOOKOUT!" It's really hard to find anything on Twitter more annoying than this.
Back in 2013, Vince Carter was a great follow. He would post awesome tweets, pictures and he would respond to fans like crazy. Carter hasn't tweeted in more than a year, though.
Henry is new to Twitter, but his account delivers nothing new. It's just your same generic updates and selfies.
Bible verses and generic motivation quotes. Not much else to see here. Though, he does respond to the fans who totally kiss up to him.
Considering Kapler is employed as a baseball analyst, it's understandable he mostly tweets about about baseball. What's not understandable is all these sabermetrics stats and these arguments he makes, which he always presents as "the final" argument. He'll just bombard you with that and updates on what supplements he's taking.
There might not be a former athlete who is more boring than James Worthy, and the same goes for his Twitter account. Plus, he tweeted that Lakers GM Mitch Kupchak did a great job getting Jeremy Lin. Worthy needs to stop.
No, his name is not Earvin "Magic" Johnson. His name is Captain Obvious.
At some point maybe Griffin will realize we get the point—he's “blessed to have another day.” With his "Know Your Why" catchphrase, Griffin is just another star athlete marketing himself as an inspirational, good guy. Don't waste your time.
Brandan Wright likes to tweet proverbs and bible verses. In between that, though, he used twitter to try and get a female manager at a hobby store fired. Apparently she was rude to him.
Shannon Sharpe probably responds to more tweets than any other current or former athlete, which is nice. The only problem is, Sharpe isn't being nice, and instead is going back and forth in an argumentative tone, trying to put any follower who disagrees with him in their place. Sharpe obviously has a lot of time on his hands since he retired, but he tweets way too much.
Perhaps Cooper's recent injury is the culprit, but the rugby star tweets like a maniac. He should be commended for responding to so many fans, but that's easy to do when you have all that time on your hands. People don't need to be bombarded like that, though.
Rose's Twitter game is almost as absent as his game on the court. It makes sense, because Rose is not the talkative type. It also makes sense to "unfollow" him.
It's not just that Keselowski tweets too much. The problem is he just tweets about beer and NASCAR—that’s it.
All Jameis Winston does on Twitter is tweet his unthinking, random thoughts and gives a "S/O to the lil bro" and this kid or that kid. His hashtags are annoying, too.
Tiger Woods joined Twitter way back in April of 2009. He's tweeted just 342 times since then, and none of those tweets have broken the Twitterverse. Unless you need to simply show the world you follow Woods, what's the point?
"Oh, look at me!" "Oh, I won a major!" "Oh, I'm so happy!" Nobody cares, Michelle.
Even if the South African double leg amputee didn't murder Reeva Steenkamp, the fact remains Pistorius shot and killed her. That makes it hard to follow him right now, not to mention Pistorius' recent bizarre, out-of-nowhere religious tweets. He doesn't seem to be all there.
It's not because he lied about not using PEDs. Wait, yeah, it is.
Roddick is the typical Twitter user—gets all his opinions out there on every sport as though everyone is sitting on edge waiting for it. And he's just too politically correct to take seriously. Oh, and the unfunny former tennis star's avi makes him look like an astronaut.
Mr. Rodgers likes to have fun with his fans, but he's a cornball. He thinks he's funny, but he's not. And he only retweets nonsense.
White's obsession with his own face on Twitter is like all the David Bowie record covers from the 1970s. Something weird is going in here, never mind all the photos belong on Instagram, not Twitter. Also, White only follows 31 people and never responds to his 1.42 million followers.
There is nothing more annoying than following Colin Kaepernick on Twitter. The man just posts photo after photo of his fans "Kaepernicking." They all look like they're sniffing their own armpits.
