Twitter and football have an interesting relationship. Many managers must tear their hair out at the mere mention of the word given the problems it can cause them, anyone remember Darren Bent’s rant at Daniel Levy before his move to Sunderland a couple of years ago? Then there’s those individuals who ‘accidently’ reveal the team plans before an important game or slag off one of their teammates on the social networking site (though football has nothing on cricket in that department!)
So what’s the big draw then? Why is Twitter still the popular option despite all the controversy it causes in the game. Well, the players use it as a way to interact with the fans more often, an opportunity that has become all too rare in the modern game. You may not be interested in what Jack Wilshere eats for breakfast but believe it or not, there are some people out there that find that sort of information fascinating. Considering footballers aren’t the brightest of bunches, there’s plenty of them out there with accounts worth following and we round up the 25 footballers/pundits on Twitter who you should follow and why.
