It has only been 24 hours since New York Yankees publicized that his official retirement will be at the end of the 2014 season, but no one can stop talking about it.
If you ever questioned Jeter’s popularity, don’t, as out of all the wave of reactions I have read, literally all have been beyond encouraging.
Over the short lifespan of the Internet, I have never saw such support for a person who is hogging all the newswires like this.
It undoubtedly solidifies just how iconic Jeter truly is.
And it is also a reminder of just how lucky New Yorkers are to have had this man love our great city with such respect.
Here are 10 top tweets about Jeet:

"What can you say about Derek Jeter?" I asked Dustin Pedroia. "More like what can't you say. He's the best."

Words can't describe how incredible it would be for the Yankees to win the World Series in Jeter's last season. #TheCaptain
