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.

Chris Rock: 'They Said No Jussie Smollett Jokes.' Forget About That
She was present to accept the award, and paid homage to the people who were nominated in the same category as her. The Cook County State's Attorney's Office dropped all charges against Smollett on Tuesday.

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?
