When Wayne Rooney joined Twitter and was brilliant/terrible at it

Quick Reads

Plenty of journalists to have dealt with Wayne Rooney over the years remark how he is much more intelligent and articulate than he is given credit for. The same, however, cannot be said for Rooney’s approach to Twitter.

At their best, Rooney’s tweets are less streams of consciousness and more primitive notes of communication that will be studied in hundreds of years of time.

We absolutely love Rooney, and his tweets are one of the many reasons we feel the way we do – so we’ve compiled 12 of the best.
