Bayern tetchy after Twitter recommends following Ronaldo

Social media can be unknowingly cruel sometimes, as Bayern Munich's US Twitter account found out to their cost recently.

Indeed, just a couple of weeks after being knocked out of the Champions League, it's perhaps understandable that Bayern were a little perturbed to see Cristiano Ronaldo come up in their "who to follow" suggestions.

The very same Cristiano Ronaldo whose five goals over the course of two legs ultimately saw Bayern unceremoniously sent packing in front of 80,000 fans inside the Bernabeu?

Too soon, Twitter. Too soon.

Chris covers the funny side of the game for ESPN FC in the Toe Poke blog.
