Nationals fans have taken over Bryce Harper's old social media handles

Share

My faith in humanity has been restored.

Since Bryce Harper changed his number from 34 to 3, he had to change his social media handles from 34 to 3, too. He did, but left his old account, BHarper3407, open to anyone quick enough to realize it was available. Nationals fans have assumed his old social media presence and I am, frankly, stunned with what they’re doing with the accounts.

They’re using them to pay tribute to Bryce Harper.

I’ve seen my fair share of upset Nationals fans that Harper left them to play for a division rival.

Even the Washington Capitals' radio broadcaster sounds like he’s pretty upset by the whole ordeal (see story). So it comes as a pleasant surprise that the new, old BHarper3407 accounts have been taken over by such genuine human beings, because frankly, I’m not sure I would have done the same thing.

So here’s to you, Nationals fans who took over Harper’s old accounts. Also, Bryce, you’re a professional athlete with a million followers, maybe try to cover your tracks a little better. Not everyone would be so lucky.
