FOXBOROUGH, MASSACHUSETTS – When New
England Patriots QB Tom Brady woke up this morning, he must have had some April
Fool’s Day mischief on his mind.
The man who Patriots fans would say is
the greatest football player of all time had a new Twitter account, just opened
in the last month or so, and had never sent a Tweet.
Then this happened:
Wide receiver Julian Edelman broke out an Office GIF to respond to his QB:
The Official New England Patriots Twitter account also decided an Office GIF was the only appropriate response:
But shortly after his initial Tweet, Brady relented:
Brady’s official Twitter account now has 164,000 followers and climbing.
Brady’s April Fool’s Day tweet had received over 36,000 retweets and almost 118,000 “Likes” as of the time of the writing of this piece.
Only half as many people “Liked” Brady’s tweet asking if the tweet was a bad joke
Not bad for an April Fool’s Day launch!
