Fernando Verdasco goes on Twitter binge with shirtless pictures

Fernando Verdasco has kicked up the volume of his social media presence "to eleven" this week.

It's as though he just signed up for an unlimited data plan and someone sat down with him over coffee and convinced him that he would get extra ranking points for non-stop tweeting about anything from the Oscars to soccer while simultaneously throwing out follower-bait in the form of shirtless pictures. Much like his clothing sponsor, Fernando went "all in."

Since Sunday, Verdasco has tweeted over 40 times. That doesn't include his impromptu Twitter Q&A on Wednesday.

Here's a sampling of his tweets, which include hashtags of his own name.

At some point he's going to run out of shirtless pictures, right?
