This week's featured tweeter is a player who, despite being overshadowed by other gold medal winners, had an impressive performance in the 2012 games. Victoria Azarenka won a gold medal in the mixed doubles event along with her fellow Belarusian Max Mirnyi as awellas a bronze in ladies singles. You can follow Victoria @vika7.
Being the highest ranked woman in the tennis world is a demanding job, but that doesn't mean that Victoria doesn't find time to tweet. She makes a point of tweeting several times each day, about tennis and other daily activities. Whether it is showing her excitement about winning gold or posing with batman and catwoman, Victoria keeps her followers up to date on both professional and personal activities.
Like many people during Olympic time, she has displayed a real sense of patriotism. Also, she tweets random, often times confusing pictures like this. Apparently Victoria had a pet monkey as a child, which is very interesting. She even has someone take pictures of her while she is playing, and tweets them later. 
Victoria as over 111,000 followers who can always keep themselves updated on the tennis phenom. She has a link to her official website on twitter so fans can always find relevant information. It is quite clear, she is as much of a charmer as she is a stellar tennis player.
