The RFU relived England's rugby triumph of 10 years ago, moment by moment, in a live tweet stream complete with highlights - and that kick.
Celebrities who use social media to tell fans what they are doing can not expect to have a private life, according to Daniel Radcliffe.
The official Twitter account of the Prime Minister has been following the exploits of a high-class escort agency, it has emerged.
Match of the Day presenter Gary Lineker has tweeted an appeal for help in finding his mother's car, which was stolen as she underwent dialysis treatment in Stoneygate in Leicestershire.
He says she is "heartbroken" as there were many personal possessions inside.
His first tweet attracted over 5,000 retweets in 20 minutes:
Some rotter has stolen my mum's car after dialysis in Leicester. Silver/grey Corsa EX09TXE. I'll reward any help with return. RT please.
A lot of her personal possessions were in the car as she's moving home. Poor women is heartbroken.
Should also say please call the police if you have information, as it's difficult to see all tweets. Car taken from Stoneygate.
Young people should be aware that things they write on social networks now may stand in their way of their dream job in the future, the Conservative vice-chairman said.
Writing in The Telegraph, Michael Fabricant said that he had sent over 15,000 tweets in the past few months. He proposed that social media should be part of wider careers advice for young people.
Mr Fabricant added: "If the 15-year-old Michael Fabricant had had Twitter, I think it would be safe to say he would have struggled to find a job if future employers could trawl through thousands of tweets.
"My concern is that for many of our teenagers and young adults, today’s contemporary ‘banter’ and jokiness could become tomorrow’s block to their future job prospects".
MPs have told Twitter that it needs to make it easier for users to report abusive messages as the social media site faced questions from the Culture, Media and Sport Committee over 'trolling' on the site.
Conservative MP Conor Burns said none of his colleagues on the Committee were aware of the reporting system.
We have twitter at Culture Committee. They are heralding the reporting abuse facility. No twitter users here can find it. Any suggestions?
Labour former culture secretary Ben Bradshaw questioned whether the site's procedures for dealing with abuse were rapid enough:
"How can we have confidence, when they are very unhappy with the speed with which you responded to the abuse they suffered, that ordinary people who don't have that level of profile and voice are having their reports taken seriously and dealt with quickly enough?".
Twitter's public policy director, Sinead McSweeney, insisted improvements had been made to the reporting function since Labour MP Stella Creasy and campaigner Caroline Criado-Perez were subjected to abuse in July.
Parents are failing to check their children's phones in the fear of being too intrusive, a new report has found.
Are Parents In The Picture?, commissioned by Virtual College’s Safeguarding Children e-Academy and Pace, questioned 750 parents and 945 professionals including police, teachers and social workers.
Many of the parents interviewed said that despite being aware of the potential dangers, they failed to monitor their children's phones in the fear of appearing too intrusive.
The research, by YouGov, found only 46 per cent filtered their child’s internet access, while just 24 per cent admitted checking text messages and 18 per cent checking phone contact lists.
More than 60 per cent of police officers and social workers feel that parents do not understand exploitation, with many calling for a national debate over how much privacy children are given.
Sinead McSweeney, Twitter's director of public policy, will face MPs today during anti-bullying week in the UK.
Facebook and Twitter executives will be grilled by MPs today amid mounting pressure on the companies to do more to tackle online bullying and abuse.
- A poll in November found a quarter of children aged 11-12 had been upset by bullying or trolling on social media
- Celebrity chef Jamie Oliver said he had banned his daughters from social media because he was afraid they would be bullied
- In October an anti-bullying charity found that 69% of young people had been cyberbullied
Senior executives from Facebook and Twitter are due to give evidence to the Culture, Media and Sport Committee today.
Simon Milner, Facebook's policy director UK and Ireland and Sinead McSweeney, Twitter's director of public policy, will answer questions as part of the committee's online safety enquiry.
MPs due to attend include Home Office Minister Damian Green, Culture Minister Ed Vaizey and Claire Perry, the PM's adviser on preventing the commercialisation and sexualisation of childhood.
