Sample tweet: "The Beards back on twitter.....Lets Rage!!!!!!!!"

The eccentric closer for the San Francisco Giants shut down his popular Twitter account two years ago, when a late-night missive made it seem as if he was out carousing during the season (he denied that he was). But fresh off helping the Giants win a World Series, Brian Wilson landed back in the Twittersphere in early February 2011, and his new account looks promising. He has already talked about punching Angry Birds through his iPad and shared his weird taste in television. "The Addams Family is currently on," he wrote in early March. "that is tv saying YOU'RE WELCOME AMERICA." We've never really thought of Lurch that way.
