Shrewsbury Town have bizarrely made a dig at a reporter after he posted an article which was on the same news as the club.
Lewis Cox, a reporter for the Express and Star, tweeted out an article which was on player Scott Golbourne signing a new two year contract with Salop.
It caught the attention of the League One club who then replied “You could have just retweeted our earlier tweet” along with the emojis of a wink and a pair of eyes.
The journalist found out what was said and hit back with “Why? I don’t work for you. You could’ve given me longer than a four minute embargo to listen to tonnes of audio from manager and player to help boost coverage”.

Of course, Shrewsbury never wrote back after that.
Nottingham Post writer Tom Leach asked: Why didn’t they just retweet you in January instead of waiting to announce the signings themselves? Poor form.

Despite getting a few likes on the club’s tweet, majority of fans saw what they said and branded them ‘strange’ as well as ’embarrassing’. And we agree ourselves, it’s a rather bizarre one considering many media outlets do this, yet don’t get a reply as such as what Shrewsbury gave to one writer – take a look at more fan reaction to these tweets on the next page.Like what the Fan Banter have on offer?
