The Top 10 International Olympic Athletes to Follow on Twitter

Last week, we published a list of the top 10 United States Olympians to follow on Twitter. We also broke down the social media guidelines at the Games and threw in some choice quotes from steamed athletes. This week, Greece expelled the first Olympic athlete for tweets. The Associared Press reported that “triple jumper Voula Papachristou was expelled from Greece's Olympic team Wednesday for her comments on Twitter mocking African immigrants and expressing support for a far-right party.”

Before anyone else gets expelled, here are the top 10 international Olympic athletes to follow on Twitter.
