Newcastle United's official Twitter account has been relaunched - to bring supporters a much-improved service.

Starting with a new, simpler name of @NUFC, the account will be used to make you feel as close to the Magpies as possible, both on and off the pitch.

We have unrivalled access to all areas of the Club, from the first team, through to the under-21s and Academy, and not forgetting the work of our official charity, the Newcastle United Foundation.

And it is only fair that we share that with you, in as much detail as possible.

Behind the scenes videos and images, exclusive Twitter competitions and a personality are just some of the features that our revamped account will provide.

Ran by Managing Editor Anthony Marshall, PR and Supporter Liaison Manager Lee Marshall and Digital Editor Dan King, we will aim to bring you in-depth, comprehensive coverage of your club that you will not find anywhere else.

If you already follow us, there's no need to do anything; your support will automatically be transferred over to @NUFC.

But if you aren't one of our 351,000 followers and want to know more, take a look for yourself by clicking here and giving us a follow.
