George Jones reports
The club’s official Twitter account @CAFCOfficial took its follower count into six figures last week by reaching the 100,000 mark.
Since its birth in August 2009, more than 82,000 140-character messages have been tweeted out by Charlton’s social media account.
@CAFCOfficial is one of only three official club accounts in League One to have a six-figure following and, having reached the milestone, we have decided to have a look back at some of our highlights.
As well as delivering daily news to Charlton supporters, some tweets have, on occasion, captured the imagination of the wider football community, whether it be the confirmation of promotion, a response to former England cricket captain Michael Vaughan, a triallist-filled team line-up, a warning to champions elect AFC Bournemouth, or many others.
And, below, you can see some of the club’s most interactive tweets so far...
