Tom Brady has a Twitter account now, and he used it to scare fans with April Fools’ Day tweet

Tom Brady is now on Twitter, ladies and gentlemen, and the first thing he did with his new account was scare the crud out of his fans.

The New England Patriots quarterback, with his first tweet, said he’s retiring and will spend his spare time tweeting from now on.

This is almost as good as the U.S. Open Tennis April Fools’ Day tweet about puppies participating this year.

For what it’s worth, Brady has repeatedly said he’s playing into his mid-40s, at the least.
