‘FOOTBALL is FOOTBALL’
— Alex Scott MBE (@AlexScott) March 8, 2019
Scott told BBC, “Twitter is there for everyone to see. I think I get it (sexist abuse) every single day now. I went through a stage over Christmas when it got hard to handle. At the time I was, ‘right, I’m going to come off Twitter and move away from social media’.”
“But then I thought that it has been my strong presence on social media that’s allowed me to connect with fans and that by coming off Twitter I was allowing them to win.
“So that’s when I put out a tweet saying, ‘actually, I’m not going anywhere and I’m going to keep doing what I’m doing’.
