RIP, Johnny Manziel & Twitter: Johnny Football's Five Most Underrated Tweets

Illustration by Monica Fuentes
Shocking news from the college football world today: Texas A&M's Johnny Manziel is "stepping away" from Twitter.

Financial analysts are divided as to whether Twitter will be able to withstand this defection and still somehow stay alive. College football fans are in a panic knowing they won't get the chance to watch Johnny Football embarrass himself on the Internet as only a BMOC Aggie can.

@JManziel2 has entertained fans and foes with tales of Cabo, Mardi Gras, and various NFL games -- key aspects, no doubt, of coach Kevin Sumlin's demanding recommended offseason workout program.

For now, though, we are left with this poignant, trenchant farewell message:


Fighting for truth, justice and Aaron Craft -- a fitting farewell, indeed. (Or, on the other hand, "Getting involved in a pointless online squabble with people you don't even know -- a fitting farewell, indeed.")

In looking back on Johnny Football's brief but thrilling Twitter career -- because there's no way he will ever go back on Twitter to let fans know of his latest adventures -- we chose not to look at his more famous partying tweets. Instead we offer five of the most underrated tweets from the supernova burst that was Johnny Football & Twitter.
