Tweets of the week

"Manchester United striker Michael Owen admits he has given up hope of being selected for England under Fabio Capello" -- Sky Sports flags a story on its website last week.

"Why are you making things up? Please show me the quote where I am supposed to have said that." -- Owen responds.

"Just because I don't expect to be picked doesn't mean I've given up. Another example of twisting words to get a good headline. -- Then responds some more.

"I do not wish to make any comment thank you. Would prefer it if you reported my quotes accurately at the outset." -- Owen's final word after Sky get in touch to offer him the chance to clarify matters.

Irish Independent Comments Facility

INM has taken the decision to remove the commenting facility on its online platform to minimise the legal risk to our business that arises from Ireland's draconian libel awards system.

We continue to look forward to receiving comments through direct email contact or via social media, some of which may still be featured on the website
