Brooklyn Beckham sets up Twitter account

Brooklyn Beckham has joined Twitter. On Friday afternoon David and Victoria Beckham's eldest child caused an online frenzy when he set up a Twitter profile using the handle @brooklyn77B.

"Football is my life / also follow me on vine @brooklynjbeckham," reads the biography on the account.

Brooklyn's account already has thousands of followers

Despite having only posted two tweets so far, 15-year-old Brooklyn's page already has 12,600 followers.

As for the lucky 12 users Brooklyn has chosen to follow, it seems his famous mum and dad haven't made the cut yet.

The teenager's close friend and rumoured love interest Chloë Grace Moretz was the first account he chose to follow.

Scottish R'n'B singer Tallia Storm, who Brooklyn enjoyed an evening out with on Thursday, blogger Tessie Hartmann and several Arsenal Under 16 players are also among the other accounts Brooklyn follows.
