We’re back with swimming’s TopTenTweets, where we round up the best of the swimming Twitterverse – which this week was taken over by fresh 2018 Phillips 66 Nationals content. Scroll to see what made the cut!
Welcome to swimming: where TV rights get sold off to a network that doesn't bother to show the meet, while the federation still can't livestream it.
That's how you grow the sport, right? By preventing anyone from seeing the National Championships?

Swimmers take recycling seriously. See: Zach Harting. SwimSwam’s new series: “can you drink out of it?”

A casual, totally random swim fan.
