Twitter, the social networking site that allows you to let your “followers” know what you’re doing, has been officially banned from the Texas Tech football program.
This action comes after one of the team’s players tweeted an unflattering message about the team’s coach while the player was in a team meeting. The player, a linebacker, voiced his displeasure over the team’s head coach being late for meetings.
The team’s head coach Mike Leach says his team does not need distractions like Twitter or Facebook and called the services “stupid.” He stated that players of college football get enough attention and called those who use such services “a bunch of narcissists that want to sit and type stuff about themselves all the time.”
So the question around Gear Diary is how long before our own Coach bans Twitter from his team?
