Lincoln City goalkeeper Paul Farman quits Twitter as he finds his focus
Paul Farman revealed he quit Twitter because he feared it was affecting his focus on football.
The Lincoln City goalkeeper had been ever present in the opening months of the season, but in recent weeks he was dropped to the bench in preference to David Preece.
However, he returned on Saturday against Barrow and kept a clean sheet in the process as the team battled out a 0-0 draw.
And he has said that quitting the social networking site Twitter has helped him in his return to form.

"I've come off Twitter. I spent too much time on it and I wanted some time to myself," said Farman following the 1-0 defeat at home to Mansfield.
"It's not about players getting stick.
"The fans have been spot on with me. There are times when I have not played well, and those which pay to come and watch and can say what they like.
"I give my all. It's not about people sending me nasty messages.
"I would be sat up watching Twitter and I was just not focusing.
"I lost my focus a bit and I lost my number one spot as well."
Farman was unable to keep another clean sheet as the Imps fell to a 1-0 defeat against Mansfield on Tuesday night.
However, the goalkeeper believes that the team showed enough potential to get a result when they travel to Woking on Saturday.
"If we play on Saturday like we did against Mansfield, then we will beat any team," said Farman.
"We need that little bit more defiance and show that sort of attitude which served us well when we were on that winning run of games."
