Snooker Players In Twitter Warning

Snooker Players In Twitter Warning

Snooker players on Twitter and other networking sites were warned recently by World Snooker about the use of language and their behaviour after receiving complaints by members of the public.

It comes as no surprise to me that the players have received this warning by World Snooker considering all of the high-profile incidents involving major sports stars and social networks including the Northern Irish golfer Rory McIlroy who had a go at a jouralist on Twitter.

As an extensive user of Twitter and Facebook I follow all of the pros on these sites and some of them have seemed to step the line a few times, nothing major, but definitely not stuff you would like to see as a potential sponsor of the tournaments or the players themself.

But I must commend the players that do use these sites to communicate with their fans as it gives a direct link to them and it makes them a lot more personable and relatable to. For example seeing Stuart Bingham's comments during and post the Australian Open and then taking a photo of the trophy in his kitchen was brilliant, more players should be doing it.

If you want to hear what some of the top stars, veterans and amateurs of the game have to say, Snooker.org has compiled a list of the players on Twitter here.

Also if you havent already, you can follow yours truly on Twitter and Facebook!
