Carl Jenkinson jokes around with Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain on Twitter

The West Ham loanee and the current Arsenal star were messing about on Twitter today.

Twitter welcomed a new footballer to the family yesterday, as West Ham's on loan Arsenal defender Carl Jenkinson joined.

The right-back, who has been in great form this season, is currently in the midst of a season long loan deal at Upton Park from The Emirates.

So when he did finally join he expected and got some love from an Arsenal player. Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain Tweeted a shout-out for his team-mate on the social networking site, highlighting the fact his pal was now online.

Seemed fair enough.

But it did not go down well with Jenko. He seemed to be livid, with his tongue firmly in cheek, at the message suggesting The Ox might have been able to put a little bit more effort into the post.

He Tweeted in response:

Of course it was all in good jest. The two were well known for being great pals, and Ozlade-Chamberlain clearly found it amusing:

Time will now tell what happens with the future of Jenkinson. He faces a battle for first-team football at Arsenal so a return is not assured.

'Carlambian' may be no more, but we are sure they will still get involved in the banter on Twitter.
