Tennis star Maria Sharapova officially joined the social craze known as Twitter on Monday, just hours after disposing of Olga Puchkova in straight sets in the first round of the Australian Open.

Sharapova attached a photo to the tweet of herself mimicking a painted silhouette of a young girl blowing bubbles. Pretty classy, huh?
The Russian bombshell already has over 28,000 followers at the time of this post. And don’t worry, folks, her account has already been verified.
It’s really only a matter of time before herds of males hear the news, immediately flock to Twitter, and seek out the “Follow” button.
By the way, her handle is @MariaSharapova. You are welcome.
