Italian striker forced to get Twitter tattoo after first ever tweet

Quick Reads

We’ve all tweeted something which we eventually regret – but rather than hit delete, one Serie B striker has delivered on a risky social media promise.

On New Year’s Eve, Benevento forward Amato Ciciretti tweeted the following video in which he promised to get a tattoo of the Twitter logo if it was retweeted 500 times.

Five hundred retweets doesn’t seem like an awful lot for a professional footballer – even if it was his first ever tweet – and the 23-year-old might be wishing he chose a bigger target.

At the time of writing, the video has been retweeted 861 times, but credit to Ciciretti, he didn’t try to wriggle out of his vow and visited his tattoo artist.

Hopefully the Italian has learned to beware what he tweets from now on.
