Chipper Jones has really taken to social media this year. Check out this quote from him on using Twitter.

In his final season, Atlanta Braves third baseman Chipper Jones discovered "The Twitta," as he calls it. His unique style of tweeting mirrors his clubhouse persona, and has given fans a unique insight into Chipper the person. Here is what he had to say about Twitter:

I think of all the signs around the ballpark, all of the tweets that I get from people who drove 11 hours from Iowa or Minnesota or the far corners of the United States just to come to see me play one last time. I’ve been relatively sheltered in the social media realm until this year. Getting to read all the quotes and read all the tweets and find out what people have been saying for so long, I’m actually sorry that I didn’t do it sooner because it’s given me a new appreciation for each and every fan who sits their butt in the seats at The Ted and what they go through just to come watch me play one last time. It’s so overwhelming. I sit up to 2 o’clock in the morning and read all these comments. I want them to know that I love them and appreciate them and I’m going to try and get out there and play each and every time I can.

I love how candid Chipper has been this year. He's let his guard down, and really let everyone in. He's doing it right, and gaining a lot of respect and admiration in the process, respect and admiration that will only help him gain admittance to the Hall of Fame the first time he's eligible.
