ECB slam Twitter use

England cricket chief Hugh Morris has spelled out his concerns about players using Twitter and claimed: "It is like giving a machine gun to a monkey."

A number of England cricketers have fallen foul of the team management after posts on the social media network, while others, including Graeme Swann, are regular ‘Tweeters’.

Morris said: “It is like giving a machine gun to a monkey. It can be fantastic or it can be an absolute disaster.”
