What would we do without Twitter? The social networking site has given footballers a platform to air their views and some have gotten in trouble with it. Newcastle’s Joey Barton loves Twitter as he uses it all the time and now our very own Jack Wilshere who is also a heavy Twitter user had a go yesterday at Barton following the whole drama in the match with Song and Gervinho.
Wilshere tweeted, “I think @joey7barton was in the wrong today. He should not have got involved and assaulted Gervinho like that.”
“Maybe Gervinho should not have reacted like he did as two wrongs don’t make a right but Barton was unprofessional.”
Barton then responded with his view saying, “@JackWilshere Nah, what about Song? Did you miss that?”
Wilshere in turn said: “@joey7barton that is a form of assault my friend it should not happen on a football pitch!”
Then Barton concluded by tweeting, “@JackWilshere hardly assault??”
