Sometimes on a tour of Twitter you come across an oddity, and the fact that Liverpool Football Club are following the Cookie Monster—who is in turn following the Anfield giants—must surely count as one of those.
What do Liverpool get out of it? Presumably such pearls of wisdom as this:
Me felt a little sluggish this morning so me drank espresso and ate about 50 Cookie! Me STILL got Happy Feet...Really hard to sit down!— Cookie Monster (@A_CookieMonster) February 23, 2014
And as for the Cookie Monster (who we should add is not yet blue-tick verified), perhaps he's just captivated by Brendan Rodgers' thrilling pursuit of the title.
More likely, of course, is that it's an anomaly. Liverpool follow no fewer than 403,000 different people on Twitter (and probably not very closely).
But the Cookie Monster following back? It's strangely beautiful.
