Hertha Berlin: Bundesliga social media czars

One of the most cutting-edge members of the Bundesliga on social media, high-flying Hertha Berlin are the top-flight's first club with head coach and sporting director on Twitter.

Both Pal Dardai and Michael Preetz have begun using the medium - and with it the club's official hashtag #hahohe - far more frequently in recent months, while in January Hertha also brought on board Twitter's former head of sport in Germany, Michael Keuter, to be responsible for their digital development.

Accordingly, bundesliga.com has rounded up a selection of the best tweets from those involved at the club...

Dardai: "With Deutsche Bahn en route to Hamburg and just had a look in the ICE cabin - cool view!

The Hungarian certainly has his side on track for the top four...
