Most of us here at PWHQ have Olympic fever, and however you feel about the rest of the coverage, there’s one cool way to follow these games that we’ve never had before: Athletes themselves are tweeting the experience! Indeed our debut stud of the day Chris Plys is one of Vancouver’s most prolific tweeters, but a lot of members of Team USA are active Twitterfolk. Behold:
