Video: Arda Turan urges fans to follow first official Barcelona Turkish language Twitter account

Barcelona have a number of non-Spanish language social media accounts to reflect their global status and have now expanded their reach to Turkish speakers.

The reigning La Liga champions have started up their very own official Turkish language twitter account.

Arda Turan has been acting like the ambassador of the club promoting Barcelona in Turkey and the Turkish world.

Barcelona have been actively expanding their reach among Turkish speakers. Turan is arguably the most popular player to leave the Super League and the club have sponsorship deals with some of the most recognisable companies in Turkey including Beko and Lassa Tyres.

Turan appeared in a short clip shared on the official twitter page of the site urging his followers to join the page.

The account was setup on 25 January 2016 and has gained over 5000 followers in four days.

Turan himself has 660,000 twitter followers, 3.4 million Instagram followers on his official page and 7 million Facebook likes.
