Hammers consider tweet action

West Ham are taking a lead in considering how best to tackle inappropriate Twitter usage after a spate of problems in the game generally and at Upton Park in particular.

Gabbidon could face FA charge
Cole accepts FA charge

While respecting the players' right to freedom of speech, the Hammers board feel boundaries must be established about how this relates to the internet, and tweeting has suddenly became a major issue as it gets out of hand.

The club have already warned their players after the Carlton Cole incident, but they might now look at putting a clause in players' contracts in the future to include responsible tweeting.

England striker Cole and more recently defender Danny Gabbidon have made headlines for making controversial remarks on the site.

A West Ham insider told ESPNsoccernet: "We live in a democracy, it's not China! We might consider putting something in future contracts. It's not in existing contracts, but I personally believe in freedom of speech." The FA has been forced to look at recent tweets from a number of players, and Cole and former Liverpool forward Ryan Babel were both charged with improper conduct.
