23 Best Twitter Football Accounts

02/06/2014
World Cup Twitter Accounts

Twitter has quickly become football’s favourite form of social media, many of the world’s greatest players are regular Tweeters and give shout outs to supporters post games. It has been a great link for fans to catch the latest news on transfer deadline day, we can also see exactly what pundits and players have to say, the good the bad and the Barton.

Of course Twitter can be a double edged sword, Gus Poyet famously found out he’d lost his post as Brighton Manager while live on air with the BBC. Some players have been fined for outbursts while at other clubs social media is simply outlawed by stricter managers. And then there’s Joey Barton.

But finding the best Twitter accounts to follow can be a tricky task so here at StagWeb HQ we have put together our World Cup Squad of the best Football Twitter accounts to keep you in touch with all the latest news from Brazil 2014.
