Arsenal announce #AskArsene Twitter Takeover, hashtag immediately trolled relentlessly
As sure as night follows day, when a football club announces a Twitter Takeover, with the relevant hashtag, all hell usually breaks loose on the social network.
We have seen it numerous times before, Arsenal fans themselves were keen for such “banter” when they trolled a Hugo Lloris #SpursQandA on Twitter last March.
On Monday Arsenal announced: “Arsène Wenger’s first Twitter Takeover is coming soon! … Whatever you’d like to #AskArsène, make sure you use that hashtag so we can see your question when you post it @Arsenal.”
Arsenal are putting their manager on the front line, so to speak, after the north London side reached three million followers on Twitter, becoming the first UK sports team to reach the figure.
So far, Arsenal have not announced exactly when Wenger will be Tweeting but the hashtag is certainly very popular…

Wouldn't it have been better to have a smaller stadium that fans could fill and a trophy or two? #AskArsene
