Aloha! Did you miss me? It's been a while. That's partly due to the whole Christmas/New Year shenanigans, but mostly because I gave up social media for a fortnight. By doing that, I essentially waved the white flag on Tweets of the Week. It also means we have a fortnight's worth of Twitter that will forever remain in the wilderness, as I have neither the time nor effort to trawl back through 14 days.
The past week has been a good'n though, so you'll forget about the first fortnight of 2016 in no time...
We start with The Tilehurst End bigging itself up on Twitter. Modest.
Honestly, how many sports websites offer glorious panoramas of both Athens AND the Milton Keynes ground on their front page like we do?— The Tilehurst End (@TheTilehurstEnd) January 15, 2016
During my time off we sold Blackman. It's somewhat soothing to see he's not impressing the Derby faithful.
Not sure if Nick Blackman or Leon Best???— Milan (@milan_salisbury) January 16, 2016
What has blackman exactly done to start his first 3 matches for Derby? #dcfc— Richard Ralley (@The_Ram_Page) January 16, 2016
@The_Ram_Page say hello the the real Blackman— Jack_Bromhead (@JackBromhead) January 16, 2016
One thing I take away from the game however is that Nick Blackman is not very good— Sam (@MaudzleySam) January 16, 2016
Former Reading striker Shane Long has been linked with a switch to Anfield. Unsurprisingly, Stephen Hunt reckons he's bang up to it.
Shane long is better than any Liverpool striker they have got,who knows if he is a Liverpool player until he gets the chance,if English mmmm— stephen hunt (@stephenhunt1010) January 18, 2016
I try not to include this here website's Twitter feed too much because it's #bareawks, but this was a good'n.
SIGNING NUMERO UNO!
Huddersfield began badly.
You won't see a more shambolic 25 minutes than this. #ReadingFC all over the place, could easily be 4-0 down. Al-Habsi keeping them in it.— Charles Watts (@charles_watts) January 19, 2016
Then got good.
Over an hour to play for the Terriers with 10 men. Great shooting chance here too, just outside area with a free-kick.— Reading FC (@ReadingFC) January 19, 2016
Remember folks, Vydra is mentally shot and utterly useless, Huddersfield probably just let him score eh Tim? ;)— The Tilehurst End (@TheTilehurstEnd) January 19, 2016
Oh I do fancy another lovely little cup run... #readingfc— Melvir (@Melvir88) January 19, 2016
Reading 1-2 Huddersfield Four minutes later... Reading 3-2 Huddersfield pic.twitter.com/BoVw2edOyZ— bet365 (@bet365) January 19, 2016
5 - Reading have scored 5+ goals in an FA Cup match for the first time since a 6-2 win over Bognor Regis Town in December 1984. Royals.— OptaJoe (@OptaJoe) January 19, 2016

SIGNING NUMERO DOS!
@TheTilehurstEnd Now to sit back and enjoy listening to DJ Megaoarty trying to pronouncing it.— Helen Bullen (@PAN1F) January 20, 2016
MAYBE-PERHAPS SIGNING NUMERO TRES!
Rumoured SIGNING NUMERO TRES went AWOL.
Gdzie jest Rakels? pic.twitter.com/5HEnGvhg9c— Franciszek Smóda (@Franek_S) January 21, 2016
That's all, folks.
Your tweet didn't make the cut? That's a shame. Maybe you should @RoyalHoops sometime.
