The England football team have been issued with a ban on making any match-related comments on Twitter for 24 hours before any game they are appearing in.
The new code of conduct issued by the FA will come into effect in November. Adrian Bevington, Club England managing director, said players could be suspended from England duty if they breached the code.
This isn’t the first time a Twitter Ban has been imposed by companies or on sports teams, and Social Media policies are becoming tighter as more instances of individuals making inappropriate or damaging comments come to light.
Twitter is now estimated to have over 465 million accounts in 2012, with 64% still using the web interface and 16% using mobile applications on their smartphone.
