Can I use screw top wine bottles for homebrew beer?

I've used screwtop bottles with plastic corks for some elderberry wine last year and they've worked fine. The only thing is to be careful when putting the corks in, as the threaded section of the bottle is much thinner glass than a normal corked bottle and so liable to break if you start trying to force the cork in.
