Diamondbacks legend Luis Gonzalez joined Twitter this week.

And many fans were satisfied with these developments.

Gonzalez’s first tweet made it abundantly clear that he joined against his will.

The only man to hand Mariano Rivera a postseason loss– and a Diamondbacks World Series win– had a tough time figuring out how to Tweet. Go figure.

Gonzo hit 57 home runs in 2001, but can’t figure out how to block someone on Twitter.
Despite Gonzalez’s Twitter struggles, some of baseball’s big names welcomed him into the Twitterverse. Like Buster Olney, whose book, “The Last Night of the Yankee Dynasty” chronicles Game 7 of the 2001 World Series.

Former teammate Reggie Sanders also welcomed him to Twitter.

Hopefully Gonzalez’s Twitter game becomes as good as his hitting game was in 2001. And hopefully Twitter verifies his account soon. There’s a million nobody Instagram models that are verified, but you can’t verify the man behind one of baseball’s most iconic hits?
