We’ve just concluded an exciting decade of change in the sport (or we technically still have one year left, I don’t know, the internet is still arguing about it). Among the biggest changes was drivers utilizing social media to communicate with their fans. Therefore, we’re going through several drivers' tweets over the past decade and picking the 10 best. First up, Twitter pioneer Brad Keselowski.

If there’s one thing less reliable than trying to diagnose yourself on WebMD, it’s diagnosing yourself via Twitter users.

As an early adopter of Twitter, Keselowski proposed this much-needed improvement very early on. Thankfully it isn’t needed, now that Twitter is a peaceful medium full of nothing but kind words, well-reasoned dialogue and peace.

Brad’s live tweeting of Joey Logano’s wedding in 2014 was 22-karat Twitter gold. MOVES LIKE ROGER, I GOT THE MOVES LIKE ROGER …

I believe after Brad won the championship in 2012, he was handed his phone in Victory Lane so he could take this photo – a sequel to his most famous tweet which you’ll see later. I mean when you’ve won the championship, why not – use the purse money to pay whatever fine might be coming your way.

I just like to think this one from 2010 was about security turning a bunch of Kasey Kahne’s fans away from the garage area because they didn’t have hard cards.

To our knowledge, Brad Keselowski was the only NASCAR driver to admit to owning a Shake Weight – the only workout device more embarrassing for a dude to use than the inner-thigh machine at the gym.

If you’ve followed Brad on Twitter, you know that one of his life-long wishes was to own a tank. He finally got his wish in 2012. I misunderstood for years – I read him post tweet after tweet and thought “Then just go buy a tank top – they sell them in packs of four at Target.” Saw this tweet and was like “Ohhhhhhhhhhh…”

A man needs a woman to set him straight, to give him honest answers, and to keep him from making bad decisions. Paige, we have never appreciated your guidance more.

One thing we’ve observed is that as drivers get older and become parents, the feuds tend to go from a full boil to a light simmer, and eventually evaporate altogether. It isn’t odd to see Kyle Busch and Kevin Harvick chatting each other up these days. That’s why one day we hope the peaceful scene here will one day become a reality. Or, Kyle still just won’t like a guy 50 years later.

The grandaddy of them all. The picture that launched a million follows. The legendary in-car photo of the jet-dryer inferno from the 2012 Daytona 500. This tweet will never be topped. Because you can’t have your phone in the car anymore. But you get what I’m saying.
