The Twittersphere can be a cruel world as Darron Gibson found out, only lasting several hours after receiving waves of abuse when he asked his followers to show him some love.
For others like Danny Gabbidon, it made the wallet lighter and the Welsh defender promptly closed his account.
Rather than work his socks off to get back into the Liverpool starting 11, Ryan Babel spent his time entertaining his followers on Twitter with some real classic tweets.
Sadly he's no longer a Premiership player following his move to Hoffenheim earlier in the year.
So who makes it into the EPL starting XI tweeting twits?
