Manchester United (@ManUtd) finally open a Twitter account: The best Tweets

Wow! That took a while!

Premier League champions Manchester United and arguably the biggest club in world football, finally joined Twitter this morning, on July 10, 2013.

Previously, over recent months, they had been using their Press Office on Twitter to relay official messages from the club.

The final Premier League club to join, Manchester United appear to have had a sea change in their thinking towards social media, especially since the departure of Sir Alex Ferguson who was disparaging on a number of occasions about the social network.

Manchester United are expected to become the biggest Premier League club on Twitter in the coming months. It took the Red Devils just a matter of minutes to reach 50,000 followers and it would be no surprise were they to hit 1 million within the week.

Below are the best Tweets on Manchester United finally opening a Twitter account. Including of course, Manchester United’s first Tweet.
