Information on how to keep up to date with Latics via social media.
Due to a number of fake player and club official Twitter accounts appearing recently, the club wish to confirm which players and staff have genuine Twitter pages.
We are also working with Twitter to ensure that all first team player accounts have the blue verification tick (right) and we can confirm that all of the following accounts are the genuine accounts of the players.
As a rule - if they have the blue tick, it's really them!
@LaticsOfficial - This is the main club account
@PhoenixBlueWAFC - (Team Latics mascots Phoenix and Blue)
@jamesmccarthy_4 (James McCarthy)
@mikepollitt12 (Mike Pollitt)

Know the rules
Twitter make it very clear that although fan and parody accounts are allowed, it is not permitted to impersonate somebody else. You can view Twitter's rules by [clicking here]. Wigan Athletic will work with Twitter to have impersonation accounts suspended.
If you discover a fake Wigan Athletic player account, we encourage you not to follow them but to report it to firstname.lastname@example.org.
We will endeavour to keep this page up to date with new players and players who join and leave Twitter.
