We’re back with swimming’s TopTenTweets, where we bring you the best of the swimming Twitterverse. It was an eventful week in our sport, with both the Indy Pro Swim Series and Atlanta Classic taking place over the weekend – scroll to check out the best content from those meets, but mostly (of course), reactions to Katie Ledecky‘s surprise 1500 world record .
Anyone wanna give me tips on how to do a successful backstroke start for my 100 back in about 3 hours?

The rare case of a swimmer reading SwimSwam comments about himself and agreeing.
Her first 800 (8:11)would have won silver in the Rio Olympics by FIVE seconds…to herself. #seriously ? pic.twitter.com/GSEhMmgequ

Ruining the concept of taper for us all.
