In a sporting world that is increasingly impatient to receive up-to-the-minute breaking news and have more contact than ever with the clubs, teams and individuals that fans love, social media is playing a big role in satisfying the needs of supporters.
Liverpool FC, as part of their drive to interact more with their fans—and no doubt gain more new ones—have identified social media as a big way to offer visual content on a regular basis without big expenditure, or without having to charge supporters money for the most part.
At the forefront of the Premier League in this particular area in terms of giving fans plenty to read, watch and enjoy, Liverpool boast over 1.4 million followers on Pinterest, more than 1.2m on Twitter and a whopping 10 million likes on Facebook.
A Tumblr gallery, Instagram accounts and even the club's own social media zone—named "The Kop"—all contribute significantly to a huge official online profile of the club.
Despite the bigger numbers on Facebook, it is arguably on Twitter where the most actual interaction takes place between the club and all it's facets, and the fans.
Players, ex-players and coaches all have their own accounts, as do various different sections of the club itself.
As an immediate, personal and tangible point of interaction, Twitter is a valuable tool for the club and the fans alike.
Here are the top 10 Liverpool-related Twitter accounts that are must-follows for supporters.
