Describing it as an exciting new age for fan culture on social media, a new Manchester United fan account on Twitter today promised to revolutionise the way journalists’ tweets are copied and pasted.
Speaking at the launch of the @UnitedConcerned account this morning, owner and Red Devils supporter Tony Glubb expressed excitement at the prospect of delivering other people’s information to fans in an entirely different manner.
“Man Utd fans have plenty to choose from when it comes to fan accounts on Twitter. There’s no shortage of them, but the problem is that they’re all the same. At United Concerned we want to switch things up a little bit and give supporters a brand new experience. Once they’ve visited our page they won’t be able to go back to the way other accounts steal quotes and information from actual journalists,” said Glubb, adding that he and his team had already devised a number of measures to separate themselves from the pack.
“We don’t want to just copy and paste things like everyone else. I mean, obviously, we will copy and paste, that’s pretty much all we’ll do, but we want to spice things up too. This isn’t your usual account, and that’s why we’re going to stick lots of emojis on our tweets, and pictures too. It’s going to be an immersive experience for true fans, and we can’t wait to get started.”
