It’s finally happened – James Milner has joined Twitter today after spending years in the social media wilderness.
Versatile Liverpool man Milner has been in very good form this season for the Reds, having played in midfield for Jurgen Klopp’s side recently.
Until now Milner had been characterised on Twitter by the famous @BoringMilner parody account.
The parody account was first created in 2013. It has proven to be extremely popular with many football fans around the globe as has amassed just under 600,000 Twitter followers.
The @BoringMilner account often mocks the ex-England international with humorous posts which portray him as being somewhat boring.
And the 32-year-old has finally introduced himself to the social networking site with a fantastic post displaying self-deprecation as he mimics his famous parody account.

I just told Paul Pogba that was my favourite dab of the season. He said What are you on about? I said For the handball. He just stormed off.

I just said to Jurgen that after that performance we should reject all offers for Mo Salah this Summer. He said thanks for that great advice, James. I said thanks, anytime.

Firmino just said to me he thinks we’re definitely through. I said That's all well and good Roberto, but the tie’s not over yet. He said But we're 5-0 up James. I said We could lose 6-0 in the second leg.

Klopp just said I'll see you next year, James.
I said but I'll see you tomorrow.
Then I realised it was a joke because it's New Years Eve.

Can't wait to give Vincent Kompany his secret Santa later. He's going to love the gift I've got for him. pic.twitter.com/82SJnER1fq
