While much of Twitter is a wasteland of mindless chatter and vitriol, occasionally nice people use it to say nice things. Being that beloved Seahawks safety Earl Thomas is often on the receiving end of those niceties, Jordan brand decided to produce special athletic tape that displays printed tweets of encouragement from the defensive back's fans. Thomas will be wearing the "Tweet Tape" during tonight's Super Bowl, no doubt receiving from it support that's both emotional (uplifting comments) and physical (preventing his body parts from exploding).
