The use of Twitter in football

The use of twitter by professional footballers has divided opinion.

West Ham co-chairman David Gold is a prolific tweeter, while Hammers manager Sam Allardyce has labelled it "dangerous".

Late Kick Off London & South East paid a visit to Upton Park for Saturday's match against Crystal Palace to canvas opinion on the 21st-century footballer's social network of choice.

Late Kick Off is shown on BBC One on a Monday evening (23:05 GMT).

You can also watch the programme again on the BBC iplayer via the Late Kick Off website.
