Default Clemson football bans players from Twitter

http://www.sbnation.com/college-foot...layers-twitter


For context:

"They ain't Alabama. They ain't LSU. And they're certainly not Clemson. That's why Carolina's in Chapel Hill and USC's in California and the university in this state always has been, always will be Clemson. So, you can print that, tweet that, whatever." -Dabo Swinney, Dec. 1, 2011

Guess he's had a change of heart

Well if one of our football players were to take German 211, they would have to tweet twice a week for credit! Boom.

Same for MART110. We had to tweet questions & comments during every class for participation points. Total BS for those of us that don't regularly tweet.

I know, right?

I remember when I was at USC, professors were constantly requiring us to do things we wouldn't normally do regularly, like write papers and take tests. WTF? Total BS.

I've never had to physically tweet for class. This past year I had the option to tweet responses to articles tweeted by the teacher, but it was only for extra credit and not required. For a SPTE sales course I was required to follow the twitter account for the course run by the teacher and read the articles, but we never had to tweet back.

If I ever taught large lecture classes I would probably utilize twitter. Probably not as a requirement, though.

Clemson has gotten more negative words/overblown statements from Dabo's mouth than players on twitter. Maybe he should turn his focus a little more to himself.

I don't think this is so much of a "don't say anything dumb" thing as it is a "you don't need the social media distraction" thing.
