Touché Tabloids: Fabregas One Ups Via Twitter

Cesc Fabregas is a great follow on Twitter. Earlier this year, I was going to put out a piece regarding how athletes Twitter personalities give us a sense of who they are and help explain the projection of them on the field.

Some of my favorites on Twitter? Fabregas (though I only understand half his tweets), Jay DeMerit, Rio Ferdinand and Nick Rimando (who just seems downright genuine.)

For Fabregas his Twitter profile was: “Obviously mature, seems like a natural born leader.”

So it was funny yesterday when a “report” came out yesterday that quoted teammate Denilson as saying that Fabregas was not a leader.

Here was Cesc’s Twitter reply…classic:

    The best way to win any situation like this is the way Cesc won it

    I wouldn’t be surprised if an Arsenal bigwig asked Cesc to do a little cleaning up, but at the same time I wouldn’t be surprised if Cesc just did this. he’s very charmingly earnest. Other wonderful football Twitters include several Arsenal boys that have been bitten by the bug – @Persie_Official and @jack_wilshere are hilarious. Another favorite is @landondonovan, who is frank and sarcastic and always a great laugh. I love the window that Twitter is providing into the real people behind the game, and I only mourn that it hasn’t spread to my beloved Bundesliga.
