The phenomenon that is Twitter has captivated many, and the current race between NBA forwards Charlie Villanueva and Chris Bosh to 50,000 followers will certainly have many tuned in.

I’m just hoping for a close finish, but seeing Bosh performing the Single Ladies dance would be hysterical.  Back last season, Villanueva tweeted from the locker room during half time of a game, and was later fined.

When I was watching PTI and heard about Villanueva’s halftime tweet, I didn’t pay much attention.  It has grown on me.  Entertaining guys like Villanueva and Bosh are always fun to follow, not to mention it’s pretty cool to see what all professional athletes do in the offseason or in their spare time.

As of now  Charlie has 45,363 followers, while Chris has 45,692 followers.  You can also follow OSF on twitter!
