Josh Hamilton joins twitter

May 15, 2012, 6:35 PM EDT

Texas Rangers batter Josh Hamilton hits his fourth two-run home run in the eight inning against the Baltimore Orioles in Baltimore Reuters

Sick of imposters posing as him, Josh Hamilton has joined twitter (@thejoshhamilton), Evan Grant of the Dallas Morning News reports.

Hamilton already has 30,000 followers in about 24 hours, even though his account has yet to be verified. He did confirm that it was his, though. He said it would be managed by his representatives, but that he would tweet himself on occasion.

Regardless of the content of his tweets, Hamilton seems assured of quickly becoming one of the most followed baseball players on twitter. Frankly, though, we doubt he’ll be half as interesting as Brandon McCarthy.

        Twitter is for droids.

        I thought Twitter was for twits…?

        I suspect we’re really on the same page here.

    Sorry I gotta go here but if this guy falls off the wagon the tweets we could get will be priceless. Drunk athlete tweets are funnier than watching Spaceballs with a six pack.

      Funnier than watching El Topo on bad acid?

    I expect a lot of uplifting spiritual messages and not a lot of baseball content.

      I don’t see a problem with that, what with the totally selective nature of Twitter.

      • jwbiii - May 16, 2012 at 1:36 AM

        I don’t either. There is no bad path out of the abyss of addiction.
