Louis Saha announces his retirement on Twitter

Is this another Twitter first? We’ve had signings, we’ve had new contracts and today we’ve seen a professional player announce his retirement after a series of tweets from the ex-Man United and Fulham striker Louis Saha.

The French striker, who was without a club after being released by Lazio, clearly thought his fans deserved to hear the news first. He forwent the usual method of informing the media and decided instead to broadcast directly to his 350,000 followers.
