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.

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.

Theresa May for manager?

Now that would make for an intriguing Premier League season.
