Nowadays, you'll be hard-pressed to find a high-profile athlete who's not on Twitter.
The platform, which allows users to post messages up to 240 characters in length is a source of endless entertainment in sports world.
Not only will you find a continuous stream of sports memes and commentary from the platform's 335 million active users, but it's the best place to watch athlete drama play out in real time.
