We asked a a group of athletes about their habits and experience on Twitter. Here's how they responded.
Two or three times a day.
Between five and 10 times a day.
All the time.
Hourly basis. It's like CNN on steroids.
Four to five times a day.
Ten times a day. Minimum.
Every 10 or 15 minutes.
My business manager, Humble Lukanga.
I honestly don't remember but I think it was one of my college friends.
My sister and Chad [Ochocinco] Johnson.
Jason Richardson. Shaq is the one who made me think about it and J-Rich is the one who was like, "Yeah, this is what it's about."
My marketing guy, Russ Spielman.
(LPGA player) Morgan Pressel.
I was introduced to Twitter in 2009 by my friend, Dee Redd.
Adam Jones (@SimplyAJ10) -- I just wanted to name AJ.
My best friend Kayla Cook, who recently moved to Japan.
Matt Kuchar. Because every tweet would come with a smile.
I wish Jay-Z and Barack Obama actually wrote their own tweets.
It's not from history but I wish Kobe Bryant was on Twitter.
I've never been in a Twitter feud.
With my brother, P.J. He plays in the minor leagues with the Reds.
Last month. It probably happens every other month.
Five minutes ago. And five minutes from now.
Got into it with some Georgia Tech players last year after posting a picture of Maryland QB C.J. Brown breaking a long run against the Yellow Jackets.
A winner of one of my Twitter contests who I treated to a Texans game and dinner.
Robert Griffin III.
Andrew Zimmern of Bizarre Foods.
Eric Grego, creator of the Mangold Maniacs.
All the guys in the band Shinedown.
Former Maryland basketball star Greivis Vasquez.
Soccer fans and lots of teenage boys.
They're very motivated. They inspire me. Some followers have got a lot of hatred in their heart. They're very energetic. Very supportive. And they're loving, the girls.
Friendly, educated people.
Collectively they represent every facet of my personality. Some are funny, some are grouchy, some feel fat, some are happy, some are sad. They're an amazing entity.
Fifty percent are crazed Maryland fans, ten percent are people I know and 40 percent I have no idea.
