Over 18 months since his last tweet, former football manager Harry Redknapp has returned to Twitter.

Announcing his return to his 368,000 followers, the I’m a Celeb legend revealed the radio silence from him on the popular microblogging site was down to a forgotten password.

Tweeting for the first time since October 2019, Jamie Redknapp’s father said: “Finally found the password for my Twitter account, what have I missed all this time? I took a break, but really need a real life holiday now, maybe a gap year or am I too old for that?”

It’s safe to say, the 74-year-old former West Ham United manager has missed out on quite a few tweets since his accidental social media detox.

Just months after Harry’ s final tweet, the world went into lockdown as coronavirus spread across the globe - leaving millions stuck at home with plenty of time to spend on social media.

While 2020 might have consisted of just 12 months, like every other year, it certainly felt significantly longer than previous years - with dramatic breaking news seeming to occur every single day.

We’ve rounded up some of the best tweets of 2020 to help the King of the Jungle catch up on the funny Twitter moments he will have missed.


The crazy year that was 2020 started with the news that Prince Harry and Meghan Markle planned to resign as working royals.

Without access to his Twitter account, there’s every chance Harry missed out on these funny takes on the young couple’s departure from the monarchy.


In the same month the term Megxit was coined, actual Brexit finally happened, with the European Council lowering the Union Jack flag on January 31 2020, signalling that Britain was no longer a member of state.

However, the transition was actually meant to have occurred at the end of October 2019 meaning that the uncle of Frank Lampard also probably missed out on Twitter’s commentary of the saga.

Parasite’s Oscar win

The 92nd Academy Awards took place in February and South Korean black comedy thriller Parasite cleaned up; taking home Best Original Screenplay, Best Director, Best International Feature Film and Best Picture.

Twitter fell in love with the film’s co-writer and director, Bong Joon-ho and his reaction to taking home so many Oscars.


And then of course, coronavirus dominated social media and news for the remainder of the year.

For those lucky enough to be able to safely quarantine, there was little more to do than keep each other amused in less than 280 characters.
