Top 5 tweets of AS Roma - The kings of Football Twitter
Football clubs all generally post the same stuff like injury news, schedule changes or transfer announcements. But many clubs have now started coming up with innovative ways of announcing new transfers.
However, there is no club that has probably engaged with general football fans as much as Serie A giant AS Roma.
A quick look at AS Roma's twitter handle might make you wonder whether it is actually an account of a football club.
Be it creating their own music playlists and posting them on their official website or being the first football club in the world to stream an entire match on Twitter, the club's use of social media is quite unique.
The Italian club's official account is massively gaining in popularity with close to 3 million followers on Twitter. This can be mainly attributed due to their large use of memes or engaging in friendly banter with other club accounts like Bayer Leverkusen and Bayern Munich.
In this post, we take a look some of the gems produced by their account so far.
