The 17 Athletes Who Don't Get That Instagram Is For Pictures


Posted on

Athletes tend to do weird things on social media, driven by the fact that they're just regular dudes and women who all of a sudden have hundreds of thousands of people hanging on their every word. Like, for example, Instagramming words that they wrote down. This is not what Instagramming is for. It's not like photography exists to just photograph pieces of paper. Yet, here we are, in a world full of screenshots of the Notepad app.

3. DeSean Jackson (jaccpot10)

DeSean Jackson is an example of the guys who have SPECIAL apps for Instagramming pieces of writing. And his is scary and bloody. Why do you want us to think you have blood on your notepad?


4. Tyreke Evans (tyrekeevans)

Here's another one, called, I believe, "Tweegram," the word "twee" OF COURSE being one you associate with professional basketball players. Tyreke Evans had this nice little message to share with his followers. And by "nice little message," I mean "tweet." THIS IS A TWEET, TYREKE.

6. Adrian Clayborn (ajaclay94)

Yeah pay for me I'm a rich athlete (plz) (I mean possibly he is just making a statement about the gendered politics of buying dinners.) (Or maybe his teammates never pay.) (I don't know.)


9. Dwyane Wade (dwyanewade)

Dwyane Wade uses something called "MyJour" to communicate with his followers. "MyJour" is short for My Journal. Dwyane Wade is a grown man. That is incredible. Also: THIS IS A TWEET. THIS IS WHY YOU HAVE TWITTER.
