Danish Euro 2012 squad banned from using Twitter during tournament


Denmark's players have been banned from using Twitter during Euro 2012.

"There is so much communication during the championships that we want to limit it to meetings with the media," said the Danish Football Association's media chief, Lars Berendt. Several of the Danish squad's players, including the Stoke City goalkeeper Thomas Sorensen and the Ajax Amsterdam playmaker Christian Eriksen, are active on Twitter.

"There was a time when we lived without Twitter and we'll be able to do it during the Euros," said Sorensen – on Twitter. He has more than 20,000 followers on the social networking website.
