In June last year, Maria Sharapova said that she was not on Twitter because her daily routine was not worth sharing and she couldn’t imagine what her life would look like if she added tweeting to her daily activities on top of her compulsive texting.
I mean, I’m bored with myself on a daily basis, and I think if I’m bored, like eating a bowl of pasta, I don’t need to let the world know that I’m at this restaurant eating a bowl of pasta.
Half a year later and the tennis super star couldn’t resist the fad. Just two hours after posting her first tweet, Sharapova already had over 20,000 followers.

Sharapova also tweeted the above photo with Melbourne graffiti.
Sweeping aside any fears of rust and the collarbone injury that forced her to withdraw from the Brisbane International, Sharapova double bageled Olga Puchkova on the first day of the Australian Open.
