Arsenal trolled on Twitter after reaching five million landmark

Arsenal have become the first Premier League club to reach five million fans on Twitter, reaching the landmark figure earlier today (Monday).

The Gunners might not be top of the table on the pitch, but their growth on the social media platform shows they continue to make their mark off the pitch.

However, the initial response to their 'thank you fans' message has not been great. Indeed, the first message from a fan with the name 'One Arsene Wenger' simply read: 'Nobody cares'.

Indeed, his comment was followed by a number of similar messages from others, including a keyboard warrior named Pierre who wrote: 'When's the parade?'

It would be easy to dismiss this as rival fans having a pop at Arsene Wenger and the Gunners, but a further look through the stream of posts suggests it is in fact the Gooners who are taking exception to the message.

The abuse continues, sprinkled with the odd positive comment, as fans generally bemoan not buying quality players and focusing on the quest for trophies rather than followers online.

For the record, it's a fair achievement by Arsenal to amass five million fans on Twitter. Considering the likes of Manchester United and Liverpool, who have a larger global following than the Gunners, haven't reached the landmark yet, it is something for the club to be proud of.

They'd probably prefer trophies, though.
