Jon Lester is on Twitter

Jon Lester is normally a man of few words. So maybe a 140-character limit will suit him.

The big lefty has has joined Twitter. The announcement came from a Boston-based public relations company and appears to be in conjunction with a video game he is endorsing.

Lester also has a Facebook page.

Jarrod Saltalamacchia bailed on Twitter after a few days. But Jacoby Ellsbury is hanging in there so far.

Keep in mind, while there are some athletes who really get into Twitter, a lot of the messages are now being sent by a PR person, somebody in their agent’s office or somebody with the team.
