Football Players on Twitter

Twitter is full of football players, so as it’s the start of the new league season I thought i’d put together a list. Twitter and footballers don’t seem to mix so it’s great to see so many players using the social network.

I’ve added them all to a list to make them easy to follow. If there’s anyone genuine I’ve missed, let me know in the comment section.
