7 Tweets that sum up the weekend in Liverpool
We had a real mixed bag of news over the weekend and Twitter captured it all.
From huge sporting news to tiny celebrations of vinyl, it’s been a busy weekend in Liverpool. We championed Amir Khan, toasted Mo Salah and cheered on the brave scousers who took on the London Marathon 2018 and smashed it! The sun shone down and temperatures rose while we hit the shops and beer gardens on Saturday before getting a first look at Liverpool’s magnificent new venue, The Florist and the extensive cocktail list!
Here’s 7 top tweets that summed up the weekend in Liverpool…
1 – Liverpool paid tribute to Avicii
Absolutely awful news the passing of @Avicii at only 28 years of age . I know he had had a few hard years and health problems linked to drinking but this is so sad . Sometimes you just don’t know the damage your doing to your body . Life is very prescious make the most of it ❤️ pic.twitter.com/3dECPsBxMy

Amir is the quickest fighter I’ve ever been around in my lifetime.. I remember being on a squad with him as amateurs and the word that I think of as soon as I see Amir is RAPID! Him and Kell is a brilliant fight! Only way to beat speed like that is timing! #KhanLoGreco

7 – Liverpool loves Angel Cake
Please RT, Its a bit unfair that @angelcakephotos has had her account withdrawn permanently due to an online dispute,I think she should be reinstated, her account brings a lot of joy to people who would never get to view her content otherwise
— Transalpino (@transalpino) 20 April 2018
A beloved, local Twitter account that shares incredible images and footage from yesteryear, has been shut down following an unrelated online dispute. Liverpool has come together in support Angel Cake, who following the influx of support, has set up a new account here, @AngelCakePics
