I'm not sure what it is with Cincinnati and athletes on Twitter, but the Bengals' Chad Ochocinco was one of sports' pioneers on the social networking platform, and now Reds second baseman Brandon Phillips is making @DatDudeBP a must-follow.

In honor of today's holiday, Phillips hosted an Easter egg hunt with a picture he posted of his locker in St. Louis. See if you can find the four eggs in this picture:

Like @Ochocinco, Phillips has used Twitter masterfully to interact with fans and bring them behind the scenes in a way they've never been able to see before.

Blue Egg top right second hangar.  Yellow Egg in between batting gloves under red shirt facing the camera.  Pink Egg in first shoe on the bottom right.  Red Egg under Red Shirt facing the camera left side of baseball glove (white glove).  The Red Egg is a little hard to see it is obscured by what looks like a white towel and a gray sleeve of a shirt.
