In this age of fake Twitter accounts, it's understandable that any athlete account without the "verified" checkmark can be questioned. But the Braves have confirmed that the account @RealCJ10 is the real chipper Jones.
In just over nine hours, Jones has tweeted three times and picked up more than 40,000 followers.

For u hunters out there, I'm no longer on BC full time, tho u will see me on some shows. Major league bowhunter is my new baby on sportsmans— Chipper Jones (@RealCJ10) July 25, 2012
It shouldn't be a surprise that it only took three tweets for Jones to get into hunting.
Jones currently is following five accounts: the Braves, his agency, Mark Bowman of MLB.com, Major League Bowhunter and sports talk host Chris Dimino.
