If you want the news before the clubs and players even know about it, Twitter is the place to do your research.
Not only that, you can also chat directly to the stars – although whether they will have time to reply is another matter.
You can also connect with KickOff.com on the social network – we will ALWAYS answer your questions and laugh at your jokes :)
Here's what's been happening in the world of soccer in cyberspace:
KickOff.com editor Ryan Cooper was incredulous at the comparisons being made between Suarez and Messi ...
KICK OFF deputy editor Melissa Reddy couldn’t resist telling her followers how brilliant KickOff.com is – and rightly so!
He may not be playing soccer at the moment, but Ryan Botha still has some words of wisdom for his followers:
