Foul play on Twitter

What a to-do over Spurs striker Darren Bent’s alleged comments on Twitter about club chairman Daniel Levy. It’s a lesson in how what seems very private when done alone on a screen can be very public. It’s called social media for a reason. Bent, if it was him – the account is now down – was daft and a little unprofessional. But he’s not been particularly well treated by Spurs, and Levy has specialised in making himself unpopular – not always to the benefit of Spurs. This was hardly a “venomous attack”. Anyone who thinks it was should hear what’s said in the stands.
