Man Utd star Rooney: You must be careful of Twitter consequences

Manchester United ace Wayne Rooney says he uses Twitter to stay in touch with fans.

As the most popular British sportsman on Twitter - he has more than five million followers - it seemed appropriate to ask him about that particular social media site in the context of the Ashley Cole controversy.

He agreed that, as an international footballer, being on Twitter "brings a sense of responsibility".

"It is a good way for the fans to see a different side of you, away from football," he said. "But you obviously know everything you put on there is seen by everyone who follows you. It will be in the newspapers the next day so you have to be careful."
