The 50 Sexiest Sports Twitter Accounts to Follow

0 of 50

    Sports and Twitter. A mixture that stands somewhere between vinegar and baking soda and fluffed marshallow vodka and root beer. While some of the biggest—and no so big—names in sports have used Twitter to put their proverbial foot in their mouth, the social media platform has also allowed fans an unprecedented, real-time window into their personalities and lives.

    Not only does Twitter give us sports junkies plenty of insights and photos to chew on, but for the athletes and players who use it regularly, Twitter followers are like currency. As a result, millions of people follow the most popular accounts. If you're like me, the hourly flurry of tweets begin to blend together and only a few truly stand out.

    And no Twitter accounts of the sports world stand out quite like those that share really hot pics. Sex does sell and Twitter is no exception. Forget the photos of gourmet meals, weird signs, and flexed biceps—they simply don't hold a candle to #sexy

    These are 50 Sexiest Sports Twitter Accounts to Follow.
