Villa takes to social media during recovery process

Villa's Twitter account, @guaje7villa already has 210.000 followers.

Villa is going full 2.0. The FC Barcelona striker opened his Twitter account this Wednesday (@guaje7villa), and garnered over 100,000 followers within 24 hours. Through the popular microblogging site, Villa also announced his new blog: http://blog-es.davidvilla7.es/. Both platforms will be updated by a team of web specialists and Villa himself.

Success of the #animsVilla hashtag

David Villa’s decision to open a Twitter account –he already has a Facebook page– is thanks to the massive support the Asturian striker has received from Twitter users after he broke his shinbone in the Club World Cup semifinal. The hashtag #animsvilla was a trending topic that day.

In addition, the striker’s official Facebook page boasts 3.6 million fans. (via FCBarcelona.cat)
