Hacker Tweets: The nasty stuff sent to pros on Twitter


SHARE THIS STORY

Twitter can be a great way for fans to interact with their favorite people, be they celebrities, athletes, friends or family. However, there are a lot of people out there that prove why we can't have nice things.

So we decided to round up some of the nasty, dumb and flat out false tweets sent from random folks to the best in the game. We'll do it each week to show what some of these pros see every time they open up Twitter on their phone after a round.

1. Tiger Woods spends a lot of money on hookers?

Some French-based Twitter feed suggests that Tiger Woods has spent up to $4 million on hookers in a year.



Facepalm.

2. Rory McIlroy gets Starbucks stalked

A dude in Belfast stops by Starbucks, notices Rory McIlroy (apparently). So he tweets about it. Cover blown.

3. This dude's not letting Bubba Watson off the hook for the Travelers meltdown

Bubba Watson was a complete jerk to caddie Ted Scott in the final round of the Travelers Championship. This dude ain't letting it go anytime soon.

4. Oklahoma State guys, Rickie Fowler and Hunter Mahan, harassed by WVU fans

So West Virginia -- which lost to my Maryland Terrapins 37-0 two weeks ago -- beat Oklahoma State at home in a football shocker. Naturally, WVU fans find the most famous OK State grads they can think of and harass them.
