Everton played Tottenham yesterday afternoon in what turned out to be a surprisingly good game between two of the free-scoring teams in the country, despite it only ending 1-1.
You might expect the Everton Twitter account to announce some of the team news before the game or hype it up or something, but no. Unfortunately, whoever is in charge of the account made an absolutely massive faux pas by forgetting he was logged in to it and tweeting as if he was tweeting from his own personal account. Whoops, but I suppose that can happen to the best of us:

Oof that’s a bit embarrassing isn’t it? Of course, the tweet was deleted fairly quickly but not before it was screenshotted so everyone could rip the piss out of it. Here are some of the best attempts at trolling:
Who cares if we lose to Tottenham tomorrow, Everton had the best day out with the best sister in the world

Absolutely rinsed, even by their own fans, but to be fair that is really embarrassing so you can’t really blame them. To be honest, I would be more concerned that my social media manager was choosing to promote his own personal brand in this way – surely he can’t have much of a clue about social media if he thinks posting something like that is a good way to increase followers and interaction!? It’s like something a 14 year old would post.
To be fair, it’s nowhere near as bad as the great Chipotle Twitter disaster of 2013 though.
