Mark wasn't Bright - but he's not the first to make a Twit of himself tweeting!

Now here's a consequence of John Terry's actions that no one could have predicted - BBC pundit Mark Bright apologising to the Chelsea skipper and Wayne Bridge and suspending his Twitter account following some questionable 'posts.' Bright made the mistake of posting comments on the social networking site about the England captain's affair with his former team-mate's estranged partner, Vanessa Perroncel. Tut, tut, Brighty, you should know better. You have now joined a group of sportsmen who have failed to stick to the maxim (that I have just made up) 'think before you tweet.' What a twit! Mark Bright apologises for going a Bridge too far with John TerryDarren Bent shows his SpursThere are ways to express your desire to leave a football club, and then there's the Darren Bent approach. A transfer request would have sufficed but that's not Bent's way. He went on a foul-mouthed tirade in his attempts to secure his move from Tottenham to Sunderland last summer. Enlarge The truth: They couldn't handle the truth @DBthetruth: 'Seriously getting p***** off now,' was followed by, 'Why can't anything be simple. It's so frustrating hanging round doing jack s***.' And later he really put his cards on the table with this beauty: 'Sunderland are not the problem in the slightest. Do I wanna go Hull City NO. Do I wanna go Stoke NO. Do I wanna go Sunderland YES so stop f****** around Levy.' The outpouring cost Bent two weeks wages - £120,000 - but he did get his move to Sunderland a couple of days later. Hughes' bail breakerThe middle of an Ashes summer last year which had seen Phillip Hughes, the Aussie batting hope, totally dominated by the England bowling attack. But the tourists lost the edge after making a team change when his tweet at 8am on the morning of the third Test announced he had been dropped. Enlarge Silly times: Hughes said too much @ph408: 'Disappointed not to be on the field with the lads today, will be supporting the guys, it's a BIG test match 4 us. Thanks 4 all the support!' Hughes' manager later tried to claim he had put the post up and blamed a miscalculation of time difference for the poor timing. Yeah, right. Jozy Altidore's late showThe USA striker, 19, was dropped for Hull City's clash with Portsmouth last October and later decided to make the reason for his omission public. Enlarge Dozy Jozy: Altidore got himself into a fine mess @JozyAltidore17: 'Apologize (sic) to you all. I showed up late. Made a big mistake. I'm very, very sorry.' He was subsequently fined because manager Phil Brown said the reasons for Altidore being left out should have remained private. 'It's going to cost him a lot of money, unfortunately. The reason he wasn't on the bench was our business.' Babel blows itIt has been a struggle for Ryan Babel since his £11.5million move from Ajax to Liverpool in 2007, and his standing at Anfield was further diminished after he informed the world he'd been dropped. Enlarge Now you're learning Ryan: Safety first now from Babel @ryanbabel: 'Hey people, I got some disappointing news, I am not travelling to Stoke. The Boss left me out the squad. No explanation.' 'What happened after a first good season? Scoring 10 goals, being young talent of the year, and then second and this season don't play at all?' That little outburst cost him a reported two weeks wages. Poulter's (not-so) picture perfectKnown for his dramatic take on fashion around the world's golf courses, Poults earned some unwanted attention when he was warned by a cinema usher for posting stills from the movie The Hangover on his Twitter page.
