I was initially cautious. As a broadcaster who is used to rabbiting on for ages, I was always going to find it difficult to condense my thoughts into 140 characters. But my appreciation for what Twitter can provide has grown to such an extent over the past 15 months that I now class it as an essential tool of my trade.
In my view, the list of stars at this World Cup – which already boasts Mesut Ozil, Ghana, vuvuzelas etc – should also include Twitter. This has in many ways been the Twitter World Cup.
