Patriots wide receiver Wes Welker has been on Twitter for less than 24 hours, and not only does he have nearly 80,000 followers already, he seems to have taken a liking to the social media outlet.

As of 9:20 a.m., he had already tweeted 11 times this morning, telling fans he was pumped for practice and trying to fire up teammates and fellow tweeters Chad Ochocinco and Rob Gronkowski for a post-practice lifting session.

For a fun and unfiltered glimpse at some of the personalities of some of the Patriots' pass-catchers, Welker (@WesWelker), Ochocinco (@Ochocinco), Gronk (@RobGronkowski), Aaron Hernandez (@AaronHernandez) and Deion Branch (@deionbranch84) are all worth following.

Welker and Hernandez are both Twitter newcomers, apparently at the urging of Ochocinco, a Twitter juggernaut with more than 3 million followers.!/WesWelker/status/149465637532606464
