It's happy birthday to the Worcestershire CCC Twitter feed which is five years old today!

The social networking arm of the county club has proved to be increasingly popular with members and supporters since its launch in 2009.

It is an avenue which helps to keep everyone abreast with the latest news and views from New Road along with the facebook page and the Worcs CCC website.

The club have sent out 17,893 tweets at the latest count and now has 15,500 followers.

The most popular tweet was one sent during the height of the floods last winter when a crocodile was first spotted in the flood waters in the West Country and led to 450 retweets.

Amy Francetti, who also doubles up as Worcestershire's membership and ticketing manager, runs the twitter account.

The twitter account is also promoting the increased content now available on the county's website including regular reports on the county players in action abroad during the close season.

Here's to the next five years!
