Crystal Palace ran away with the political tweet of the day award
Strong social media work there.
After finishing 14th in the Premier League, Crystal Palace fans could do with a victory to celebrate and, courtesy of the club’s social media account, they’ve got one.
After the 2017 General Election resulted in the Conservatives falling short of a majority, Prime Minister Theresa May made her way to Buckingham Palace for an audience with the Queen.
So Laura Kuenssberg, political editor at the BBC, announced as much.
Just officially confirmed - she ll go to Palace at 1230— Laura Kuenssberg (@bbclaurak) June 9, 2017
Nothing out of the ordinary there – but that’s when Crystal Palace got involved, with many retweets the result.
That’s some fine football/politics tweeting.
The replies made for a few chuckles too, with some going for positional puns…

…while others played on a classic transfer window tweet.

Now that would make for an intriguing Premier League season.
