SI.com's week-long look at Twitter and sports continues with this piece on 10 sports figures who tweet too much. While I'm not a fan of over tweeters, I had nothing to do with this list, so if you're a fan of one of the people on it, please don't e-mail me. Since we are talking about Twitter pet peeves, though, I will give you my personal list of the 10 dumbest/lamest/most annoying/ tweets someone can send out. You can e-mail me with complaints about this list.
1. "This!" (followed by retweeting something someone wrote).
2. "What he said!"
3. "What she said!"
4. "Hater!" (or even worse, "H8r!").
5. "I'm unfollowing you." (I'll let the brilliant Ricky Gervais explain this one.)
6. So-and-so is "crushing" it.
7. Anything about the weather.
8. Correcting a your/you're or a their/there/they're mistake.
10. Retweeting a compliment someone gives you.

Kate Upton Video Of The DayIt's been a while since a new Kate Upton video hit the Internet. That changed today, although I'm not quite sure what to make of this latest offering.
Tim Tebow Video Of The DayI often hear from female members of Hot Clicks Nation that they'd like to see more scantily-clad men around here. Since they don't complain about the scantily-clad women (see above) and just want equal time, I feel like I should reward them every now and then. So here is a new video of a shirtless Tim Tebow.
