Fernando Alonso has just opened his official Twitter account (@alo_oficial)
“Hello everybody!!! I invite you to know me better…! Let’s go…;)))! “With these words Fernando welcomed all his followers and from that moment, following was massive. Only two hours after his publication he had over 20,000 followers. At the end of the day there were more than 60,000.
“We start a new season, new haircut, new Twitter… I hope this is a good experience for all”, Fernando explained in a video in English and Spanish. Fernando wants to have permanent and direct contact with all his followers to chat in a friendly and relaxed way about the anecdotes and sensations before and after each Grand Prix. “I don’t want to just say I ended third in qualifying or fifth in the race. I want to tell you what happened before and after the race”. “I am sure we’ll have a great time”.
Fernando is already in Melbourne, host to the first race in the 2012 world championship with the Australian Grand Prix. He continues to tweet with all his followers every day.
