@RVP, @AVB and @Moyesy Have One of the Great Twitter Conversations

Mark PattersonUK Staff WriterMarch 28, 2014

Twitter is a strange place, where people feel comfortable abusing you viciously if they hold you responsible for their football team's failures.

Furthermore, even if you're not on Twitter, people are happy to assume you are, and harangue the most logical Twitter handle.

@AVB has had it—and she is not Andre Villas-Boas. When AVB was in charge of Spurs, the New York-based woman was bombarded with offensive messages, and replied with lyrics from musicals.

@RVP has had it—an Indian man whose name, Ravi Visvesvara Prasad, means he shares his initials with Robin van Persie. He should not be confused with @Persie_Offical, but of course, this is Twitter.

This week, the victim of abuse is @Moyesy, who is not by any stretch of the imagination David Moyes, who is not on the social network.

In theory, these people are disconnected victims of the Premier League's anger-thon, but Twitter brought them together to share their experiences in one of the more amusing conversations you're likely to find on the Internet:


It's good that they have one another, because past behaviour suggests angry Twitter users aren't going to stop to read before they type.
