"Good luck to all of you getting your A-level results today. My fingers are well and truly crossed!," "Don't worry about the results, kids. I failed A-level maths. I have been working in financial services for 10 years. Nobody's noticed," and "#A level results today?. Remember we respect education in the UK;the average teacher earns more in a year than a footballer in a day..." tweet microbloggers."
