Looks like somebody decided to run an April Fool’s Day joke a little early this year.
Surely the admin must have known what they were doing when they wrote the tweet?
When the January window rolls around, fans are left a little bit on edge when it comes to news from the club. It’s part of the reason that fans will respond to anything that the club says with weird tweets usually circling around demanding them to ‘announce someone’.
So when the club posted a tweet of the players signing some shirts for charitable causes, whether on purpose or accidentally, started it off by using the ‘signing emoji’. And it got a lot of fans excited, and then ultimately disappointed as they expected it to be news of a new player arriving.
And needless to say, they were not happy with the person in charge of the Twitter account, and they took their anger out on them for raising their hopes and then dashing them away.
Ugh thought this was a signing

Don’t ever use that emoji again unless we are announcing a signing 😭

That's out of order that. Using the pen emoji during the transfer window. Jokes. #SacktheAdmin

Are you concerned with how long it's taking for deals to be done?
It’s rather amazing how much trouble such a little thing like a simple emoji can cause, although maybe this falls on the shoulders of the fans for not reading the post properly.
