"I'm retiring. In my spare time, I'll be tweeting #LFG", he tweeted.

New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady has officially joined Twitter, according to a company spokesman, and it isn't a coincidence that it came on April Fools' Day.

New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady (12) reacts after Super Bowl LIII against the Los Angeles Rams at Mercedes-Benz Stadium. Meanwhile, if you're a football fan, you probably want Brady to retire immediately so your team can finally have a chance at winning a championship. So it was fairly obvious that Brady was just trying to fool people on the biggest day of the year to mess with fools.

While many users appeared immune to Brady's prank, some Patriots fans were sent into a frenzy.

The Cougars (33-4) got 20 points from junior guard Armoni Brooks , who made six of 12 shots from beyond the 3-point arc. The Tigers won't have much time to adjust, with a showdown against the second-seeded Kentucky Wildcats on Sunday.

So, while the tweet is very much a joke, the account is very real and growing.

Not only that, but coming on the heels of teammate Rob Gronkowski's announced retirement, many may have been taken in by Brady's humorous tweet.

Brady, who turns 42 in August, has addressed the subject of retirement before, saying he hopes to play until he is 45.
