Wearing patriotic batting gloves from @underarmour today! #USAsay.ly/Uuk45ODHarper quit his account (someone else scooped it up and all his followers).

Well now Bryce Harper is back. At least, someone on his PR team is.
Bryce's people probably saw that Twitter was a great marketing tool for a player, and a great way for players to connect with fans, so they probably encouraged him to start a new account. However, unlike last time, other people will most likely be involved. In fact, the new Bryce account's second tweet was a picture of Under Armour gloves. $$$$.
Expect a lot of "I love mom & dad", "I love DC", and "Here is a product you can buy!"
Most likely either some ghost writer will be posting everything, or Bryce will be submitting all his tweets to his people for review before post. Either way, if you are a Nationals fan you should be following the new @BHarper3407 even if it is a censored, watered down, make people happy version.
Of course, I didn't talk to Bryce, but this seems to be the smart move.
