Ricky 'The Twitman' Hatton

The Hitman has become the Twitman. Former two weight world champion Ricky Hatton has joined Twitter so he can interact with his fans and the media.
Twitter users can follow Ricky Hatton on the handle @realrickyhatton where he will be keeping in touch with his followers on a daily basis.
The Hitman opened his account on Tuesday morning and inside two hours amassed 4000 followers.The former two-weight world champion said: I have had one or two problems with social networking sites before, but decided to come out of the dark ages and join Twitter.
It will be a good vehicle to keep in touch with fans and journalists and let people know what I am up to in my life.
Now that I am training fighters like Adam Little and Craig Lyon I will also keep followers updated with how they are looking and my own career as a trainer.
Wearing my promoter s hat, I shall also be able to break news of upcoming fights that Hatton Promotions will be staging.
Once I get used to it, I will also have Q A sessions with boxing fans and chew the fat with them.
The only account I will be using is @realrickyhatton so people should ignore any other account using my name.
