Robbie Savage : Mr Savage has gained somewhat of a cult status amongst the twitter world. The self appointed king of all things banter, he inevitably chipped in on the footballer wages debate.
Explaining that “People who save lives and fight for their country and put their lives on the line should be on more than me but that’s not my choice”. Causing him to quit the social networking site back in 2010, after supposedly backing Wayne Rooney’s mega money deal in the tabloid papers. Robbie couldn’t stay away though…http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wcoQf7ILkM0
Rio Ferdinand : A prolific tweeter, barely an hour passes without an update from the England man. “Ferdy’s”’ updates read like a conversation between two 14 year olds discussing Match of the Day the next day at school. His row with Piers Morgan provided an entertaining alternative to the typical “giggsy was gr8 today”. It began with Morgan tweeting “ Not injured AGAIN, Sicknote?” To which Rio bit back, “tues could be a bad day as Embarrassing Bodies are filming and @piersmorgan starring in episode about moobs.” Ouch, Low blow Rio!
Wayne Rooney : As well as keeping us update with Coleen’s pregnancy, his love of Xbox games and his team mates at Old Trafford. Rooney provided the world with his shocking hair transplant pictures, with opposing fans penning Rooney based hair chants already, a West Ham type verbal assault down the lens of a camera could be coming to a ground near you next season..
Darren Bent : An upset Bent let the world know his feeling towards Spurs chairman Daniel Levy, complaining about how he was being messed around at White Hart Lane. Before eventually securing a ‘dream’ move to Sunderland for a snip at just 24m where to be fair, he has continued to deliver. Begging the question is he what Spurs could have done with this season, a player who could actually finish the service provided by the likes of Modric etc.
Phil Neville : The Everton captain rounds up the list, leaving the (best!?) till last. A modern day Oscar Wilde amongst the drones of tweets, showcasing his linguistical skills. He topped the list for the most “intelligent” footballer on Twitter. Using intermediate words 59% percent of the time, compare this to his former united team mate, Rio, who only used intermediate words 11% of the time.
