Players banned from using Twitter during Euro 2012 tournament
Friday 01 June 2012
England have warned players to be careful when using Twitter at Euro 2102 while Spain and Denmark have banned their squad from using the social networking site during the tournament.
Teams fear that off the cuff remarks on Twitter could cause problems during this month's finals in Ukraine and Poland and other sides could follow the directives.
England captain Steven Gerrard told a news conference today: "We've been told not to be tweeting anything unnecessary."
Spain midfielder Cesc Fabregas earlier tweeted: "From today we are not allowed to use social networks, I wish that the next picture I post will be with the Euro Cup. See you soon!"
