Alex Rodriguez is on Twitter

Jun 24, 2013, 4:29 PM EDT

Via Marc Normandin of SB Nation, we’ve learned today that Alex Rodriguez is on Twitter:


Of course he’s in all-caps.

His feed is pretty boring right now. Training updates and the like. Which I’m sure the New York tabloids will spin into “A-Rod even underachieves at being history’s greatest monster” or something.

    The photo gallery on his website is missing the mirror-kissing and centaur shots.

      Does it feature a victimized babes gallery?

    For someone who is known for caring way too much what people think of him, Twitter sounds like a horrible idea for Alex Rodriguez.

    On the other hand, it gives people a whole new venue for taunting him. Which makes it a great idea for people not named Alex Rodriguez.

    I wonder if he had to buy that twitter handle from the original owner or if twitter gave it to arod.

      Not sure why all the thumbs down, solid question. Wonder if a website or twitter name are already taken, what does it take to take/purchase that name/handle…

    Why’d he go with Valverde’s dump picture there?

    • heyblueyoustink - Jun 24, 2013 at 5:36 PM

      He could have used his “syringe in the ass” shot. At least to troll everyone who is going to troll on him first.

      • historiophiliac - Jun 24, 2013 at 5:39 PM

        Well that’s a quandary. The needle ruins a good ass shot, but then again, how can you hate an ass shot. Hrmmm. How to go on that?

    Somewhere, Scott Boras just face palmed himself?

    • historiophiliac - Jun 24, 2013 at 7:05 PM

      In all seriousness, Boras and his staff are probably doing his tweeting. It’s PR. I doubt he’s like Verlander and the like and handles his own. His is probably more like Miggy’s — the staff posts for him.

      • churchoftheperpetuallyoutraged - Jun 24, 2013 at 7:16 PM

        He dropped Boras before re-signing with the Yanks in ’07.

      • historiophiliac - Jun 24, 2013 at 7:17 PM

        Oh. Okay. Nevermind. Thanks, church.

    How fitting. Another twat tweeting.

    • historiophiliac - Jun 24, 2013 at 7:06 PM

      Vagina hating? Do I need to go back to the Delmon Young jokes?

      • tuberippin - Jun 24, 2013 at 11:06 PM

        I’m not hating on vaginas. I don’t think I’ve ever called a vagina a “twat”, just people.

        Also, if you hadn’t noticed, derogatory/pejorative terms for people who are not well-liked are often linked to words that you could view as “vagina hating.” Example: douchebag. Just sayin’.

      • historiophiliac - Jun 24, 2013 at 11:14 PM

        Exactly — the inference being that there’s something bad about them or being associated with them. 😦

    It’s a good way to get into good graces with the fans. Show a personal side. Tiger Woods did the same thing.

    • tuberippin - Jun 24, 2013 at 11:06 PM

      Worked out pretty great for Tiger….

    When will it be the cool thing to not hate on arod

    • historiophiliac - Jun 24, 2013 at 7:03 PM

      When centaurs fly.
