Depending on whom you ask, Twitter is either the worst thing or the best thing to happen to athletes.

If you're asking the fans, it's definitely the best thing.

Not only does Twitter give athletes an opportunity to exercise their comedic chops, but it gives them the chance to troll each other—and the fans. It gives them a chance to color outside the lines a little bit and prove to us that they do have personalities, despite what their over prepared, overly diplomatic news conference responses might suggest.

And sometimes, it gives them the opportunity to make complete and total fools of themselves, to our delight.

To all of the front office officials who haven't yet made Twitter illegal on their teams: Thank you. And to those who have, thanks for robbing the fans of one of the biggest joys in life.
