MILWAUKEE €”

Milwaukee Bucks forward Charlie Villanueva was back on his Twitter account Wednesday - safely before tipoff this time.

Villanueva's widely publicized experiment with posting to the popular social networking Web site during halftime of a big game has ended at the team's request. But Villanueva still isn't sure he did anything wrong.

"I have my own personal opinion on it," Villanueva said after Milwaukee's 106-80 loss to Orlando Wednesday night. "I understand coaches and GMs and I respect them. I'm not going to go against them, but my own personal opinion is we do have time (during halftime) anyways."

Villanueva wonders if there's really any difference between a player taking a few seconds to do a television interview at halftime and taking a few seconds to use their mobile phone to post a Web message to fans.

"It's kind of a double standard, but that's coach's opinion and the team's opinion and I'm going to respect it," Villanueva said.

Villanueva became an overnight Web celebrity after he posted a note, called a "tweet," to his Twitter feed during halftime of Sunday's game against Boston.

His tweet after:

OK, if u think game tweeting is concerning, what do u think about tweeting during brain surgery: http://gmy.news.yahoo.com/v...




His original tweet during the game:

In da locker room, snuck to post my twitt. We're playing the Celtics, tie ball game at da half. Coach wants more toughness. I gotta step up.

Wow, that's major BS. Shaq should speak out about this. He's the perfect voice.
