Stars from around the country have paid tribute to Sir Alex Ferguson's incredible achievement, having today reached 26 years in charge of Manchester United.

Meanwhile, ex-Middlesbrough and England defender Gareth Southgate has shown why he should be the future of investment banking, whilst Phil Neville damages has a sausage-themed laugh at his brother's expense.

Elsewhere, Gary Lineker reflects on the benefits of high-tech camera lenses, and Andros Townsend has a stalker.

All that, and more, in Tuesday's Word on the Tweet!

"Fergie time has now reached 26 years at Manchester United. A truly astonishing achievement!"

Former Tottenham striker and Match of the Day pundit Gary Lineker kicks us off by letting people know of Sir Alex Ferguson's astounding run at Old Trafford.

"Doing a photo shoot for @walkers_crisps this morning. Wide angle lens as always #getthelugsin"

Another gem from ex-Barcelona star, Gary Lineker. He clearly sees the benefits of technologically advanced camera lenses.

"Does any of you no how to block a specific number from calling your phone??"

Tottenham midfielder Andros Townsend appears to be struggling with a prank caller. Either that, or the players' reactions to AVB's decisions are worse than originally thought.

"@GNev2 morning Gary what u had for breakfast 3 sausage butties??"

Everton skipper Phil Neville confirms the rumours that banter was rife in the Neville house during the brothers' early years, as he teases his brother about a comment he made analogising young footballers to sausage butties... WOTT knows exactly what you meant, Gary...


Short and sweet from Swansea City midfielder Michu, as the Spaniard shows his support for his former club, which faces liquidation later this month if it cannot raise necessary funds.

"Finished the #celebtrader challenge with city index with £2400 raised for @OpoFlorian. Thanks for the tips! #allforcharity"

TV pundit and Ex-Middlesbrough defender Gareth Southgate shows the world that he's more than just a pretty face. WOTT can neither confirm nor deny the rumours that Goldman Sachs are interested in the 42-year-old.

"Off on the train to Manchester Last chance saloon for City. #barisalreadyclosed!"

Former Arsenal defender and Manchester City fan Lee Dixon paints a sombre picture of the club's hopes of staying the in Champions League, ahead of their must-win clash with Ajax on Tuesday evening.

"Morning all, everybody have a great day and try to do everything with a positive attitude. Also how many ppl can you make feel good today?"

Carlton Cole appears to be hoping that if he is really, really nice to West Ham boss Sam Allardyce, he may find a way into the starting lineup at Upton Park.
