Stoke City striker Michael Owen is happy to utilise Twitter.

The 32-year-old also applauded the FA's decision to introduce a code of conduct for England players in the wake of the Ashley Cole Twitter row.

Owen, a prolific tweeter himself, added of Cole: "He came out straight away and apologised, did exactly the right thing in doing that.

"It's great for all concerned that it's obviously all been sorted now and Ashley can get on with playing for England, which is the most important thing to him and obviously the country."
