Liverpool striker Borini loves Twitter

Liverpool striker Fabio Borini admits he loves using Twitter.

The Italian joined many of his teammates on the social media website in January 2013 and quickly amassed thousands of followers - indeed more than 100,000 in total.

He told Liverpoolfc.com: "At the beginning, I wasn't really aware of Twitter and how it works.

"I asked two of my friends to make a Twitter account and manage it for me. After they taught me, I took everything on board.

"There are 100,000 people who follow and read what I write - it's exciting. My friend said that we need to celebrate, but I said: 'It's only 100,000, we need to get more!'

"It's obviously something funny but I don't have aims for that. My aims are on the pitch."
