The great thing about Twitter is that it gives celebrities and athletes an opportunity to post anything they want whenever they want to the entire world. Did I say great? I meant absolutely horrifying for PR teams. Some athletes have been able to show their great personalities, while others have shown…something a little different. Here are 20 of the funniest, most bizarre, and craziest tweets from MLB players and personalities. Special thanks to Lana Berry for finding several of these gems.
1. Chicago Cubs’ pitcher Clayton Richard was really excited to be on Twitter, but didn’t exactly understand the character limit.

2. Daniel Murphy took over the Mets account for a day and this happened.
3. Jon Heyman posted a truly incredible hashtag typo
4. Brett Anderson compliments fellow pitcher Zack Greinke’s pitching and amazing hair.

11. Bryce Harper hit a homerun and Julio Teheran didn’t appreciate how long he admired it, so he hit him with his next pitch. That led to the team’s accounts getting into this hilarious Twitter argument.
