Have you been feeling a little down lately? Noticing a nagging void in your life for the past year or so? If so, we’ve got just the cure: the return of SwimSwam’s weekly TopTenTweets.
Every Sunday, we’ll compile the ten best swimming-related tweets we can get our eyes on, given the vast number of great tweets out there. Who can make the TopTenTweets podium? Anyone. How can you better your chances? Following @swimswamnews and @torreyhart (#NoShame) wouldn’t hurt.
If our top ten aren’t enough and you want an unfiltered, 24/7 feed of all things swimming, subscribe to the ever-growing Swimming Twitter list (message @torreyhart if you’re a purveyor of can’t-miss swimming content and want to be included in the list).
We won’t keep you waiting any longer — at last, the return of TopTenTweets:

David Marsh to UCSD was the surprise move of the summer; we had to see it to believe it!

Some of us here at SwimSwam — and many of you in the Twitter-sphere — are too young to have to seen this real-time. We love seeing Rowdy and those #vintage warm-ups.

We’re out here hitting the snooze button multiple times while Dana and her newborn baby go to morning practice. There’s a reason she’s got 7 Olympic medals to her name and we don’t.
Hawaii to-do list today:

While Lia Neal #JustWantsToBrunch, Ryan says #JustLetMeWork. Every swammer knows the drill.

When you can decorate your pool with a line of of NCAA Championship banners, you’ll know you’ve made it. Hook ’em.
