Dennis Taylor joins Twitter

Dennis TaylorCoalisland legend Dennis Taylor has created an account on Twitter, gaining more than 2,000 followers within his first day on the site.

The snooker world champion chose the profile name @dennistaylor147 – suffixing his name with the iconic maximum snooker break.

Taylor joined the social networking site while out for a drink with fellow BBC commentator John Parrott and snooker ace Cliff Thorburn.

He said in his inaugural tweet: “Just signed up. Having a drink with John Parrott.” The message was posted online at around midnight on Tuesday May 24 2011.

Within minutes the final-frame winner was bombarded with messages from fans.

A jovial Taylor said in his second tweet: “Great to hear from you all. One more glass of red with my good mates Cliff Thorburn & John Parrott & then off to bed. Not with them though.”
