April Fools? Tom Brady announces 'retirement' in first tweet

Super Bowl 53: Five things to know

Tom Brady picked the prime day to post his first tweet ever.

The Patriots quarterback used April Fools’ Day to try his hand at comedy, “announcing” he has decided to retire and tweet in his newfound spare time.

All the Brady naysayers out there shouldn’t hold their breath, though. Brady has stated multiple times that he wants to play into his mid-40s. With Brady turning 42 in August, he ideally hopes he has a couple of years left in the tank.

That didn’t stop Twitter from chiming in on his first tweet.
