So this week on twitter in Liverpool we have seen the city run a Rock and Roll marathon, a man sit in a pub with a offensive shirt to return home to untold amounts of Lilt, various TV shows, political drama and of course, we have had a little bit of sport and transfers aswell!

What has happened?

Well, people ran the Rock and Roll marathon last weekend, town got shut down because of it and nobody was able to get to work – But people won medals and they were all over Twitter..

After this, the Pier Head started getting geared up for the Mersey River Festival.. I have been gearing up for it for weeks, I’ve had Billy Ocean on repeat since I found out he was coming to the Pier Head to be honest..

The demise of Paul Grange

So many of us know that scousers on twitter have had a tendency to be brutal when it comes to defending themselves.. Well, its hard to mention what has happened this week without mentioning a man who had the ridiculous idea to get a shirt printed with an offensive message about Hillsborough on the back of it. The city became aware and responded by sending alot of Lilt, a petting zoo, skips, strippers, escorts and much much more to his front door. Here are some of the tweets:

Lets not forget the best tweets to come from the Tony Bellew fight at Goodison

So after all that excitement, we got into the monotony of the weekdays.. Nothing actually exciting has happened that I am aware of. England played a football match, Liverpool was largely not bothered. However, some great tweets have been posted.. Let me show you..

Like this monstrosity of food…

Public transport in the city is still at tragic levels regarding bus drivers giving change..

And super cars are being spotted in Kirkdale.

Or this new place to eat on Bold Street

Not forgetting that a big gorilla was shot this week in America after a child fell into a moat where the gorilla was relaxing and it sparked international outrage..

My favourite account this week is the fantastic @ThisIsLiverpooI twitter account which is smashing it when it comes to fantastic pictures of the city. Mixed as well with old and new. Here are a few of their tweets..
