Another Twitter storm has arisen in the world of football. This time it has been revealed that the Danish football federation (DBU) has said its players will not be allowed to send updates through social media during the European Championship in June.
Denmark goalkeeper Thomas Sorensen has called it "a shame" that players cannot tell fans what they do "without revealing tactics".
A DBU spokesman said on Tuesday that the coach Morten Olsen wants players to focus on the tournament and for "the 24-7 open microphone" to be shut down.
It was also revealed that the squad will send numerous updates to fans via the team's own social media sites beside the regular press conferences.
The sports minister Uffe Elbaek said it was the DBU's decision but noted that his first thought was that it may be "a violation of the freedom of speech".
Do you agree that this decision by the DBU is violating the Danish player's freedom of speech? Or do you believe the DBU's somewhat 'harsh' decision is the correct approach to entering a major tournament? What are the dangers of players using personal social media sites during important tournaments? Should England adopt the same tactics to dispel any distractions?
