Whilst footballers’ have been caught out with controversial tweets on several occasions, it is also allowing the players to have a direct mouthpiece to the fans, and in some cases, the fans to speak to their idols.

Here, we’ve compiled a Liverpool XI of players who have taken to the social media phenomenon.

Simon Mignolet@SMignolet

The Belgian shotstopper regularly updates with post-match reaction and photographs.

Andre Wisdom – @andrewisdom47x

Having spent the season on-loan at Derby, Wisdom could be making the step back to regular first-team football at Liverpool in the near future.

Mamadou Sakho – @mamadousakho3

Tweets in both French and English, with plenty of references to his famous friends on both sides of the English Channel.

Glen Johnson – @glen_johnson

Regular updates from the England international thanking fans of their support and information about the Glen Johnson Foundation.

Jon Flanagan@jon_flan93

The “Red Cafu” has come on leaps and bounds this season, and judging by his Twitter account, he’s loving every minute of it.

Lucas Leiva@LucasLeiva97

One of the first, and most notorious Liverpool tweeters, Brazilian midfielder Lucas posts lots of family photos with his fellow South American Red contingent. 

Jordon Ibe – @IbeJordan

The youngster is close friends with Raheem Sterling and is certainly one to watch evolve over the next few seasons.

Philippe Coutinho@Phil_Coutinho

The Brazilian magician appears to be loving life on Merseyside, regularly posting celebration tweets. 

Raheem Sterling – @sterling31

Sterling uses Twitter both to connect with fans and also his close friends. What a season he’s having. 

Daniel Sturridge@D_Sturridge

Leading the attacking line, Sturridge is a regular tweeter, sharing his close connection with God and giving thanks for his abilities.

Luis Suarez – @Luis16Suarez

Suarez has taken to posting behind-the-scenes photos of himself and teammates on Liverpool’s triumphant march towards the Premier League title.

The (rather large) subs bench could well be made up of Pepe Reina, Fabio Borini, Daniel Agger, Victor Moses, Iago Aspas, Luis Alberto, Martin Kelly, Sebastian Coates, Brad Jones and Ryan McLaughlin, whilst a special mention must be given to the Steven Gerrard Foundation account.
