    U.S. Olympic Swimming team member @LoPerdue shares a cool shot diving through ring bubbles. Interesting to look at things from a different perspective. #AISWIMSOCIAL

    @History_Pics takes us back to 1863 with this shot of the Brighton Swimming Club. Love that even in their swim attire they find it necessary to keep the custom of covering their heads. Wonder if they wore their hats in the water! Either way, it's a good one to store in the #TBT file. #AISwimSocial

    Shameless self-promotion for @AquaticsIntl ... But we couldn't resist sharing this one from @fountaineer, who was obviously happy to receive the 2014 calendar from Aquatics International! #AISWIMSOCIAL

    @KalahariResorts teases with a construction shot of the indoor waterpark and resort it's building in Pennsylvania. The firm is calling it the largest indoor waterpark in the Poconos. But as Aquatics International recently reported, other investors are planning to enter the region with a park that may just rival Kalahari's. Time will tell which will ultimately be the largest indoor facility in the area, but for now, Kalahari seems to be taking the lead on this one. #AISWIMSOCIAL

    @JabariWater knows everyone can use a little words of encouragement now and then, and these inspire the swimmer in all of us. #AISSwimSocial

    @FreakyAbandoned has some of the best abandoned photos on Twitter and often shares images of pools and waterparks, like this one of Rock-A-Hoola Waterpark in the Mojave Desert of Southern California. The park first closed in the later 80s but reopened after a makeover in the 90s. But the park's history is a tainted one. After three owners and an accident involving an employee that resulted in a $4.4 million settlement, it finally closed for good in 2004. See more images and read more about the waterpark here. #AISWIMSOCIAL
