Tom Brady Joins Twitter to Announce His Retirement

The Patriots quarterback used April Fools' Day to try his hand at comedy, "announcing" he has made a decision to retire and tweet in his newfound spare time.

If you're a fan of the New England Patriots, the last thing you would want is for Tom Brady to retire.

In February, after claiming a record sixth Super Bowl ring, Brady had said he had no intention of retiring.

And Twitter users also hoped it was real.

Of course, Brady isn't actually retiring and we know that because he admitted that his tweet was a joke, which came as good news for anyone out there who thought that maybe it wasn't a joke.

But in a reflection of Brady's still-growing popularity, the tweet posted at 12:19 p.m. ET had surpassed 20,000 "likes" within the first 30 minutes.

You can't really blame the Patriots for being a little antsy and that's because they just watch their star tight end abruptly announce his retirement on social media.

Boston.com notes that while Brady's post-2019 contract is still in the works, the 41-year-old quarterback is far from retirement.

Second, why couldn't Brady send this out from his Facebook or Instagram accounts?
