Today Twitter went buzzing with the rumor or may be the fact that Roger Federer has joined twitter. What caused this buzz?
At about 12pm CET, the official Roger Federer (RogerFederer.com) website on their homepage displayed the follow link of Roger Federer's official facebook account and official twitter account @RogerFederer

This @RogerFederer twitter id had about 76 followers at about 12:00 pm CET, but, with in a couple of hours, now has 1439 followers.
Now, the homepage of the official RogerFederer website has removed the twitter link from their homepage and also, this follow @RogerFederer twitter link has been removed from their homepage.
But, under the links section on RogerFederer in the my links, there is still a link to twitter account, which states twitter and leads you to @RogerFederer twitter id.
A Brief history of @RogerFederer Twitter id::
RogerFederer twitter id is showing as registered on 9th April, 2013 on all tools & apps meant to check from which date the twitter id was registered from.
As, I had stated when MariaSharapova had joined twitter, Twitter has blocked id's of famous personalities including all old and young Tennis players.
So, I am 100% confident that this @RogerFederer twitter id is 100% genuine and we will soon get an official confirmation from Roger Federer.
PS: I have dropped an e-mail to the media communication cell of RogerFederer.com to get a clarification from them on this issue, when ever any clarification is received, will update this post.
Update: Roger Federer has finally announced today that he has joined twitter (23rd May, 2013 at 23:30 CEST) and his account has been verified by twitter.
