The EFL is working on a set of social media guidelines for its clubs, amid a number of recent Twitter exchanges.

The league has been speaking to clubs on the matter since March and are looking to run a seminar for their respective social media teams.

The EFL would also like representatives of Twitter and Facebook to attend these seminars and offer advice.

The league accepts that clubs may sometimes overstep the mark, but they want to help them maintain best practice.

West Brom trolled fellow Championship rivals Stoke on Twitter earlier in the season after the Potters bragged about a game they had previously won against them.

Bristol City and Brentford also recently exchanged tweets after Fulham followed both clubs, following the Cottagers' relegation from the Premier League.
