Centre forward Darren Bent hit the headlines last week following a series of abusive messages posted on the social networking site Twitter which were highly critical of Spurs chairman, Daniel Levy. Unsurprisingly, the ‘tweets’ got Bent into hot water and his account is no longer accessible, so you can’t follow him. However, he’s not the only footballer to tweet. Here are some tweeting players and managers I’ve discovered, divided into those I can either vouch for myself, or have been able to verify in some way; those who may possibly be genuine – I suppose the fun there is trying to figure out the truth – and a couple who almost certainly are fake, but who are rather funny.
The First Team
Sitting on the Bench
The Pub Team Players
And over to you – any suggestions for additions to this list?
