(Video) 37,000 people tune in to watch accidental Manchester United Instagram live video

One of Manchester United’s social media admins had an absolute nightmare today when the clubs official account went live on Instagram accidentally.

A video of the stream was published to Twitter with the caption: ‘37,000 people are currently watching Man Utd’s accidental Instagram live. Sounds like an admin is microwaving lunch and making a cup of tea.’

The video has since been removed but it was up long enough for almost 40,000 people to tune in to see nothing and hear what sounded like cups, plates and a microwave door.

It’s not yet known if the club will address the accidental live stream of just put it down to a genuine accident.

We will keep you posted as the story develops.
