FIFA 18: Alex Hunter has started a Twitter account… and it’s getting torn to shreds

'You're not real Alex you virgin'

Alex Hunter has joined Twitter… which is leading to some interesting results.

The account, @MrAlexHunter, was started by EA as a means of ramping up PR ahead of the launch of FIFA 18 in September.

It’s a nice idea in theory, but in reality poor old Alex is getting torn to shreds.

Largely because he’s a fictional video game character and is little more than a bundle of pixels with no soul.

Just take this really convincing tweet directed at him from Tottenham’s Dele Alli.

It’s safe to say that people aren’t buying it – and are finding the whole thing pretty cringe-worthy.

Just take a look at some of these tweets.

Savage.

Thankfully, the cringe-worthy ‘Alex Hunter’ account isn’t the only option for you to keep track of the star’s movements.

The actor who plays him, Edun Adetomi also tweets about the game from his @adetomiwaedun handle – and it’s slightly less contrived. 

There’s also this brilliant parody account, @AHunter29_FIFA.

Here’s one of our favourite tweets:

Now, it hasn’t been updated in some time but we bet it’ll kick into life again when The Journey: Hunter Returns arrives later this year.

Here’s hoping, anyway!
