Twitter putting live football at risk


by David Allen

All of a sudden the micro blogging site Twitter has become the must have addition to a site, especially when it comes to business.

However, as good as Twitter is, there are some sectors of business that feel it could be a danger to profits, especially the satellite football channels.

One such business is football, as it has been found that people who cannot get to a match or watch it on TV can effectively watch it on Twitter.

Some people have set up specific team accounts with blow by blow Tweets on the match action.

One such service, FootyTweets, has recently been forced to close part of the service down because the established media did not like where it was leading.

Essentially anyone could start up a Twitter account that provides such a service, but at the risk of upsetting some very powerful organisations behind satellite TV.
