    Interesting post.

    I'm slightly concerned that Football clubs are taking a 'nip this in the bud' approach to their players Twittering. For example Ryan Babel was recently warned over his conduct following a tweet about referee Howard Webb. I know Darren Bent and numerous other footballers have faced sanctions for their tweets also.

    Do you think Twitter can coexist with the game on a long term scale? Should clubs be monitoring players accounts or does this negate the point of players having it in the first place?
