Tom Brady joins Twitter on April Fools Day, announces his retirement

May JohnsonApr 02, 2019

Tom Brady #12 of the New England Patriots speaks to the media during the New England Patriots Super Bowl LIII media availability at the Hyatt Regency Atlanta on January 29, 2019 in Atlanta, Georgia. He shook his head when asked whether he might step away after his record-setting victory. Conveniently announcing his retirement April Fools' Day, Brady added that in his spare time, he'll be tweeting.

Of course, the Patriots quarterback has repeatedly said he is not retiring, but the question continues to dog him with every season, so the idea that he was retiring might not seem that far-fetched. The latter had a glimmer of hope today as Tom Brady made his Twitter debut. "Was this a bad joke?"

Some fans, who clearly weren't paying very close attention to the calendar, were a little anxious after they saw Brady's tweet.

Brady is a 41-year-old, three-time NFL MVP who has to stop playing some time.
