April Fool's, right? Tom Brady causes stir with first-ever tweet

Report Tom Brady expected to skip OTAs for second year in a row

Report Tom Brady expected to skip OTAs for second year in a row

Welcome to Twitter ... and the hell that is April Fools' Day.

Brady's announcement did not go down well with New England Patriots and National Football League fans on Twitter, many of whom saw right through it.

"Retirement from football" is not such a amusing line when the context involves a six-time Super Bowl-winning quarterback by the name of Tom Brady.

It was Brady's first-ever tweet, as Fox News pointed out; he joined the social media platform last month.

It seemed his team, the New England Patriots, and Twitter were in on the joke.

Boston.com notes that while Brady's post-2019 contract is still in the works, the 41-year-old quarterback is far from retirement.

For the Patriots, the voluntary program start day will take place on April 15th, while clubs that hired a new head coach after the end of the 2018 regular season were able to begin offseason workout programs on Monday. "In my spare time, I'll be tweeting #LFG". Brady made history by winning his sixth Super Bowl ring Sunday night.

And Twitter users also hoped it was real.

Second, why couldn't Brady send this out from his Facebook or Instagram accounts?
