The 11 Best US Olympian Twitter Accounts

These are the athletes you should be following for the 2012 London games.

1. Kevin Love — Basketball

Kevin Love is not just the best tweeter of all of the American Olympians, he’s also the best tweeter in the NBA. He’s a pro. Enjoy it.

2. John Orozco — Gymnastics

Orozco’s feed is full of, “Oh my god, I can’t believe I’m actually at the Olympics,” moments. It’s adorable.

3. Lolo Jones — Track And Field

Lolo Jones has been called the Liz Lemon of Twitter. She’s used the service to get dates, she tweets about being unlucky in love, and, oh yeah, she’s hilarious.

4. Cullen Jones — Swimming

The American swimming star’s account is full of slice of life observations from London. A must-follow.

5. Ryan Lochte — Swimming

When you’re poised to be the break-out star of the games, your Twitter account is worth checking out. And without Lochte’s Twitter we would never know he was missing his high school reunion to compete.

6. Natalie Coughlin — Swimming

Coughlin is a veteran of the Olympics and you can tell. Her feed is hillariously matter of fact about the games. It’s a unique take on the experience.

7. Candace Parker — Basketball

The WNBA star is addicted to Twitter. She’d be worth the follow even if she wasn’t in the Olympics.

8. Hope Solo — Soccer

The controversial soccer star is charming and candid on Twitter. Though she doesn’t typically tweet about the drunken shenanigans that she’s somewhat infamous for.

9. Nick Symmonds — Track And Field

Symmonds is excited about the games. No, really. His tweeted pictures are absolutely delightful. They offer a glimpse inside what it’s like to be living your dream.

10. Jordan Burroughs — Wrestling

Jordan Burroughs’ account is a gem. I think it’s fair to say that he’s been excited about the Olympics for a while. He’s hilarious and he loves taking funny pictures. What more could ask for from Twitter?

11. Jordyn Wieber — Gymnastics

One of the USA’s “Fab Five,” Wieber is charming, and photo-happy. A great combination.
