Chelsea legend John Terry has joined Twitter, and even before getting his coveted blue tick, he had thrown himself headfirst into the swing of things.

The former footballer has been replying to fans throughout the week, and even engaging in banter about ‘banging wives’.

The 40-year-old signed up to the site under the handle @John2606Terry, but has since changed it to the much more manageable @JohnTerry26.

Prior to being verified, Terry insisted that the account was the real deal, sharing a video and saying: ‘Good morning Twitter. Yes this is me, yes this is my official account. I’m gonna be getting my blue tick at some point this week.’

He tagged Twitter a number of times to speed up the process, but while waiting, he interacted with fans, thanked them for their support, and sent out some rather scathing clapbacks.

After being welcomed to the platform by cricketer Kevin Pietersen, one person wrote: ‘Best make sure wife doesnt follow him [sic].

Terry fired back: ‘Your [sic] safe, just seen yours on your account’, followed by with a pig emoji.

He whipped out the pig emoji yet again after a follower tweeted: ‘How many wives u banged this year JT?’

The star replied: ‘Ask your missus’, and after the same person tweeted: ‘F*** ur game will i dnt even ride her [sic]’, Terry responded: ‘I’m not surprised’, followed by the emoji.

The fan took it in his stride though, replying: ‘She wants a signed Chelsea Jersey XXL mate she’s a big fan u left a sock behind if u want it back.’

Terry continued the banter, writing: ‘I will sign it and give it to one of the other lads to drop it off next time they are there…’

The jokes were in reference to Terry’s alleged affair with his then-teammate Wayne Bridge’s partner Vanessa Perroncel.

It seems the risky tweets didn’t harm Terry’s chances of being verified, as he now has a blue tick badge two days after signing up to Twitter.

It seems the former centre-back has some time to kill, after quitting as Aston Villa’s assistant head coach after three years on Dean Smith’s coaching team.

Confirming the news in July, he said: ‘It has been a tremendous honour and privilege to have spent these last three years at Aston Villa, but I feel now is the right time to make the extremely difficult decision to move on.

‘I want to be as respectful to the manager and everyone at Aston Villa as I can and, having given my future serious consideration over the summer, I genuinely don’t feel it is fair to move into a new season without being certain of seeing that through.

‘My immediate plan is to spend some quality time with my family and, thereafter, hopefully take up some invitations to visit clubs and managers around Europe to develop my aim and objective of becoming a manager.’
