ESPN personality Mark May is the sole proprietor of a famous Twitter feed. From it we can learn many things about him, including that he remains a massive Pittsburgh Panthers homer, apparently watches no TV shows besides Burn Notice, and loves mentioning the name of the company that pays him to endorse its smart phone, despite his frustrations with smart phones.
Also, unless I missed one, he has never replied to anyone or retweeted anything and has shared very, very few links, and all of those are links to his own Facebook. He is his world entire.
Update: Mark May went months without tweeting in late 2013, then bombed out many days' worth of social media content all at once. We think he was accidentally saving all his tweets as drafts instead of sending them, then one day hit Send All Drafts.
Here are other things we can learn about him:
He is often a man of few words.
