The identity of this man remains top secret and is known only by Delia Smith, Alan Partridge and Captain Canary.

He is the man behind the phenomenon which is the Canary Call Twitter profile, which has attracted over 7,700 followers for his hilarious tweets from the @01603617321 account.

The man behind the popular tweets has now shared just why he loves the cult BBC Radio Norfolk phone-in quite so much (and we use his answers in capitals – as well as some of his unusual spelling – as that is part of his Twitter style).

Q Can you remember when you first started your Twitter account?

A I GOT A POOTER IN 2008, CAPS LOCK BUTTON BRUKK IN 2009, I GOT INTERNET ACCESS (AT HUMM) IN 2010, AND SOME BLUKK CALLED STEVEN FRY KEPT GORN ON ABOUT THIS THING CALLED TWITTER WHERE YOU CAN MOON AND GROON TUH YUH HEARTS CONTENT. SO I THOUGHT I’D HAVE SUM-UH-THAT AND SIGNED UP IN EARLY 2011 - NORCH FANS SEEM TUH LIKE UTT.

3. GARY DOHERTY – HE TRIED HIS BEST DITTEE?
4. CODY MACDONALD – DESERVED TUH PLAY MORE

Q Do you think NCFC will avoid relegation this season?

A IM CONFIDUNT REGULATION CAN BE AVOIDED AND A LATE PUSH FOR EUROPE BE MAINTAINED. IN HOOTUN WE TRUST

Q Do you think Norwich will beat Newcastle tomorrow night? What team would you pick to start for NCFC?

  • Side note: Its all about following @CaptainHootun at the minute for me! Very funny, and sure a large % of readersposters of this site will enjoy it. Regardless of if you want Hughton out or in! Obviously there is a small % who dont have a sense of humour and will likely get very angry and serious with it, but if you have a brain and can take a joke you'll enjoy it. Have a search!
