We're all for football clubs taking a more personal approach to their official social media accounts, and in that respect, Borussia Dortmund are one of the most enjoyable to follow.
While most clubs will ignore the vast majority of media published about them or their players, those who are running the official twitter page of Dortmund do the exact opposite, and seek out rubbish so as to ease their supporters' fears.
While Bayern Munich took German publication 'Bild' to court over incorrect stories on Arturo Vidal (a very different type of story, granted), Borussia Dortmund merely replied to a tweet about midfielder Ilkay Gundogan that they didn't like, and their fans loved it.
Gundogan's contract is up in the summer, so naturally he will be linked to the biggest sides in Europe, but when Diario Sport suggested that the German international was set to follow Pep Guardiola to Man City, the Dortmund account was having none of it:
.@sport Really? We should know about that, shouldn't we? Truth is, we don't know anything about that.

Twitter would be a safer place for football fans if every club took that approach.
Of course, twitter reacted like only twitter can:

It was quite well played to be fair.
