What hasn’t Jose Canseco done? Fought The San Diego Chicken in an MMA match? Check. How about creating ‘manfume’ that’s partially made from dragon blood? Yep, he’s done that too. What else do you need to know about Jose? Oh, how about his aspirations to run the country? Another year gone and I did not get into the White House — Jose Canseco (@JoseCanseco) April 29, 2013 Follow the former Bash Brother here.
Just in case you need to know, he’s the one on the right. If his obvious close friendship with Tony the Tiger isn’t enough to sway you, how about this photo? But if you think he’s just about getting some laughs, Bissonnette, aka Biz Nasty, is eager to remind you that he’s a hockey player first. How else can you explain this hockey mug? And did the Coyotes winger make a veiled threat to Tom Cruise with this tweet? Bartenders who flip bottles behind their back before pouring drinks, simmer down. — Paul Bissonnette (@BizNasty2point0) April 23, 2013 Follow Biz Nasty here.
One of the original superstars from the WWF (old school wrestling fans know what we’re talking about), the Sheik, aka Sheiky Baby, is one of the most outrageous personalities on all of Twitter. If you don’t remember the self-proclaimed legend from his wrestling days, here’s one of the videos he likes to retweet from time to time. Not ringing a bell? What about him playing ping-pong with Rowdy Roddy Piper? Before you click the follow button, be warned: The Sheik is known to drop an F-bomb or 20 in his tweets. Oh, and he likes a brewski from time to time. Overtime I need cold beer — The Iron Sheik (@the_ironsheik) April 27, 2013 To follow the master of the Camel Clutch, click here.
The athlete formerly known as Ochocinco who was formerly known as Chad Johnson (huh?) is as outrageous as he always was on the field. He's not shy to open up to his followers and even help out someone less fortunate named PorkChop. But this is still Ocho ... huh ... Chad Johnson we're talking about so we're still gonna see some of his sexy fans and his own brand of prophylactics. But no matter how big he gets, he doesn't forget his friends. This fool PorkChop is famous now — Chad Johnson (@ochocinco) April 30, 2013 Follow Chad Johnson and or Ochocinco here.

Do we even need to explain why you need to follow this guy? First, he's showing you a syringe with the fluid taken from his knee (Look up). Then he explains to you how he returned from knee surgery so quickly by saying he's too sexy for his cat. And what about his Easter spirit? For us in the media, he's the gift that keeps on giving. He even gets the last word when the Lakers got knocked out of the playoffs. Tell Kenny Smith I am not going fishing. I am going to the hood — Metta World Peace (@MettaWorldPeace) April 30, 2013 Follow World Peace here.
The former baddest man on the planet is another must follow. How can you not follow a guy who stole the show in 'The Hangover' and helped his old foe Evander Holyfield (pictured far left) push some barbecue sauce? But Iron Mike owed Evander one after this infamous incident. And anyone who retweets this from Howard Stern is aces in our book. I'm sitting here thinking about Mike Tyson sleeping with a tiger at night. — Howard Stern (@HowardStern) April 29, 2013 Follow Mike Tyson here.
Yes, we know, she's not an athlete. But Andy Murray's mom is not shy to make her feelings (however racy) known. Take for example when she was very impressed by her son's upcoming opponent Feliciano Lopez. Two years after her initial tweet, she kept up the act. But despite her antics, she's still a fan favorite. And it looks like she's a Sopranos fan. Ok ok. Here it is. Me n Kevin. Or is it Tony Soprano? #TheBodyguard twitter.com/judmoo/status/… — judy murray (@judmoo) April 20, 2013 To follow Andy's mom, click here.
He might not be a household name, but his Twitter followers know how entertaining McCarthy can be. And his dedication is unmatched. Days after being struck in the head by a line drive, McCarthy was back at it on the social media site. His interests seem to range from this, to this and also this. Though his approach might be a little unorthodox. Pretty frustrated with being terrible thus far, so tomorrow I'm going to go scream at pigeons in Central Park if anyone cares to join. — Brandon McCarthy (@BMcCarthy32) April 17, 2013 To follow Brandon McCarthy, click here.
His YouTube mixtapes are must-watch material and not because of his off-the-charts athleticism. His Twitter feed is also can't-miss stuff. How do you explain this? The Nuggets' big man claims he's the innovator of the finger mustache and is currently riding a quadricorn (Yeah, we're stumped on that one, too.) And could he be starting a new lifestyle?

Another under-the-radar guy, Anderson is making a name for himself on Twitter. The A's hurler seems to be a fan of Charlie Sheen, cats and Twinkies. Even without all that, retweeting this gem automatically gets you on this list. Boobytrap backwards is partyboob. Carry on. — Not Grumpy Cat (@VeryGrumpyCat) April 28, 2013 To follow Brett Anderson, click here.
The man who calls himself Dat Dude (not to be confused with The Dude) is exactly that on Twitter. The Reds second baseman tweets a ton and stays in constant contact with his followers. He even got into a back-and-forth with FOXSports.com's own Ken Rosenthal, who had to let Phillips know about his bow tie game. LOL...That is correct RT @ken_rosenthal: As I said on TV, @datdudebp knows that snap-ons are NOT how I roll! @mlbonfox — Brandon Phillips (@DatDudeBP) April 28, 2013 To follow Dat Dude, click here.
One of the most outspoken players in the NFL, the Vikings punter is right at home on Twitter. He takes to the social media site to give his views on a wide range of topics, including gay rights. But Kluwe also keeps it light, like pointing to this and this. Oh and this idea could be awesome. So my wife says me and Tebow should do motivational tours together. We'd draw ALL OF THE DEMOGRAPHICS. #takethattonyrobbins — Chris Kluwe (@ChrisWarcraft) April 30, 2013 To follow Chris Kluwe, click here.
