Arsenal fans must be proud of themselves for achieving such a monumental figure. Even though Arsenal haven’t won a silverware for the past 8 seasons, their global fan base is however on the rise thanks to the beautiful brand of football they play.
It has been confirmed that Arsenal are the first ever English club to reach 3 million followers on Twitter. Although not a serious issue, it certainly explains about the global reach of the North London club. Arsenal are closely followed by Chelsea and Liverpool with more than 2 million followers while Manchester United are far behind with just around 1.3 million followers. And in doing so, Arsenal have become the first sports team in the UK to reach such a milestone.
@Arsenal was launched in 2009 and has become the fifth-largest in the world after @FCBarcelona, @RealMadrid, @Lakers and @GalatasaraySK. Among the clubs in the Barclays Premier League, @arsenal is followed closely by @chelseafc which has 2.98m followers. (Premierleague.com)
