Jason Collins came out today in an open letter which he penned to Sports Illustrated, and the support he received was overwhelmingly positive. In an order to show how we as a society are progressing in an upward trend, we have compiled some of the supportive Tweets which folks have been sending.   Some of the Tweets are from famous folks, and others are just from your average Joe.  There are of course a few folks who are on the opposite end of the spectrum, but we would rather focus on the positive.
