The handle combines humour, swag and facts and for a professional football club that is something new indeed.

Fans who follow them (@BulawayoChiefs) who include none other than retired Zimbabwean international Cephas Chimedza (@cepho13) are all rooting for Chiefs (on Twitter).

“Hopefully @CastleLagerPSL will have an award for the best social media interactioins at the end of the year,” tweeted Chimedza in support of Chiefs’ work on Twitter.
