Joey Barton went to his twitter page to give the world the heads up. Barton tweeted: "How I wish the mass media had christened me Joe instead of Joey. I hate Joey, not going to lie. Nobody I respect calls me it... #justsaying." He added: "I've kept it as a twitter handle because that's what everyone knows me as #dullards. No point starting twitter as someone nobody knows?" But he then admitted: "Gonna have to change this twitter handle now. The #dullards have a point, I'll give them that."
