Twitter. It has changed how we report on Australian women’s football and given access to an international audience to love our game as much as we do.
We first joined in 2009 with our first tweet by editor Ann Odong.
I said I would never get on twitter but here I am. My first tweet. Just finished an article for The Roar and updating the website. Enjoy!

4 ½ years, 33,600 tweets, 5 W-League seasons, 1 Asian Cup and a World Cup later, we are still here with a team that has grown to 12 passionate members.
We also thought that this would be a chance to look at some of the first tweets of some Australian footballers.
chilling back in germany for the 2011 womens world cup!
