Ooh, don't Twitter!
The BBC website has a report on the use of Twitter in football filmed at West Ham versus Palace. Ken's Cafe appears and there's the East End wisdom of the Queens Market stall holder on footballers who get into trouble with Twitter: "When you're driving your Aston Martin home, your children go to private school, and you're having a dip in the pool with your beautiful wife, you're on holiday in Mauritius, think to yourself I can handle that bit of ag!" However, even the revelation that the Pope is a user can't persuade Big Sam to start tweeting. He declares there's "150 per cent no chance" of him opening an account.
