Even the Manchester police are now trolling Liverpool on Twitter
Greater Manchester police have used Liverpool’s miserable form to make a road safety warning on Twitter, with a message that was predictably well received by their local audience.
Amid a publicity drive to urge drivers to stop using their mobile phones while behind the wheel, the cheeky police force used Liverpool’s miserable form during February to highlight their message.
Use your mobile phone & drive as of today you'll end up with more points on your licence than Liverpool FC got throughout February......SIX— GMP Middleton (@GMPMiddleton) March 1, 2017
Predictably, the tweet attracted thousands of retweets and the fact that the police force have not deleted the message suggests they are pleased with their social media hit, with some of these responses summing up mood among fans of both clubs:
