Social media is great for a lot of things. But one of the best things it's good for is the visuals.
Instagram, Twitter, Facebook, WhoSay—all of these networks offer us an exciting and unparalleled glimpse into the lives of athletes and celebrities that we idolize. And sometimes, when the stars align, some of those athletes and celebrities join forces to tweet photos of themselves together.
Without social media networks, when would we get an opportunity to see Sophia Vergara's effusive joy over watching Eli Manning stretch? Or when would we get to see Baltimore's two most ferocious athletes just chilling on the grass together, contemplating life? Or when would we get to see the president of the United States imitating the most viral Internet meme of 2012?
