Twitter has revolutionised the way that breaking news is shared. Almost all professional clubs have official Twitter accounts which they use to announce injury news, team line-ups and lots more information which is useful to football traders.
Team news is especially vital for pre-match traders. When the market finds out that a key player is missing - or unexpectedly returning from injury - prices move much more than normal, creating a profitable opportunity.
Of course, none of us want to follow the official Twitter accounts of every team; we want relevant news when we need it. In order to make that as easy as possible, I maintain lists of official football club Twitter handles for the leagues which are most popular with traders.
You can subscribe to these Twitter lists - completely free - so that you have every account to hand whenever you need it. Enjoy!
How to Subscribe to Twitter Lists
It takes a matter of seconds to subscribe to a Twitter list:
- Click on each of the buttons below for the leagues you're interested in (don't worry, they will open a new tab in your browser so you won't lose this page).
- Click the subscribe button for each (as shown in the example image).
- That's it!
You can easily set up columns for each list with Tweetdeck (and that's free too!). It will save you being spammed to death by midweek Tweets about teams and players you have no interest in until it's time to trade.
