Newcastle United won promotion back to the Premier League in style after sweeping aside Preston 4-1 at St. James' Park, and as always, Twitter was the place to be.

Following on from Brighton's promotion to England's top flight last week, Rafael Benitez's men made sure they'd be joining the Seagulls after last Monday's minor hiccup at Ipswich, with a much more assured performance on the night.

The Magpies' promotion at the first of asking is an impressive feat given the tremendous difficulty teams face upon being relegated from the Premier League.

The notoriously hard Championship division can be a real slog of a season and often catches newly relegated teams off guard - but not Rafa's Toon Army.

As is always the case with terrific things achieved by a big club, Twitter was awash with both jubilation and jokes in equal measure... ​

Newcastle are officially back in the big time along with Brighton, but it remains to be seen who will go up as division champions - the Seagulls will seal the title with just one more win.​
