Getting Social: Gonzalo Higuain & Gerard Pique
The introduction of ‘ballers to social networks is an phenomena that excites our hearts/loins and brings us more joy than baked goods with hidden travel-sized liqueurs inside.
While we previously crowned Rio Ferdinand as King of the Twitterverse, another contender is emerging as a spirited hopeful to steal away his crown.
That someone is Alvaro Arbeloa, who’s on a Twitter Mission to singlehandedly convert all of his Real Madrid teammates to the joys of 140 characters and Twitpics galore. So far Arbe’s persuaded Sergio Ramos, Xabi Alonso, and now Mr. Shelf-Booty himself, Gonzalo ‘Pipita’ Higuain. This brings the current tally of RM folk on twitter to 7, with Fernando Gago, Kaka and of course Cristiano representin’ the club.
Apparently, Arbeloa is currently teaching Gonzalo the nuances of tweeting, and constructing the perfect background image that both encompasses his formidable ass and adorbs face to their fullest glory (we hope).
Who’s next on the Twitter convert list remains to be seen, but we would pay good Chanel to see The Special One let loose on the Twitterverse.
In other social networking news, Gerard Pique has booted up the laptop and decided to bring his lovely self over to Facebook. Here he can be seen to be discussing the relative merits of The Lovely Bones vs Green Zone, and snapping pictures of swanky hotel rooms.
We know. It’s riveting ish and we’re all over it.
Clever clogs Pique is taking a leaf out of Cesc’s book and Facebooking in English, Spanish and Catalan like the smartypants that he is. Can he be persuaded to join the growing legions of footballers on Twitter and join BFF Cesc, as well as teammates Iniesta and Puyol? That remains to be seen, but we love that we now have a legitimate outlet for all our stalking needs.
Which footy player would you like to see joining the ranks on Twitter and Facebook, Kickettes?
