In the world of The Mighty Zlatan Ibrahimovic, anything is possible. Not only does the talismanic Swede constantly defy the rules of physics with his acrobatic goals and assists, but he is also delivering a flying kick to the face of social media.

The team behind Ibra's brilliant Twitter account appear to be planning something for Monday, as the star has insisted that he needs more than 140 characters to express himself for some kind of announcement/literary masterpiece/free-form anti-Guardiola poetry.

He has demanded the micro-blogging site alter its constraining word limit, asking them to #DareToZlatan in the process:

Zlatan loves nothing more than speaking about himself in the third person, and sometimes the media gently mocks him by using his name as a verb. Now, the Paris Saint-Germain star is owning that too:

Previously, Ibra has used his Twitter feed to send Cristiano Ronaldo one of his T-shirts, and earlier this week he congratulated PSG teammate Blaise Matuidi for his excellent bicycle kick goal for France by insisting that he must have seen a certain long-haired Swede doing it at training

Meanwhile on the field, he scored his 23 league goal of the season in PSG's 3-0 win at Bastia on Saturday, but his finest moment was a very Zlatan-esque assist for Ezequiel Lavezzi:

UPDATE: This is the video Zlatan was teasing. It uses 'Heavy Metal' by Don Felder on the soundtrack, so it is therefore beyond excellence...
