Default No twitter ban?

I've been noticing some of the players still on twitter. Thought they usually shut it off by now.

No ban this year until coach thinks it's necessary. Some players logged themselves off but there's no ban on the whole team.

Let's just hope they don't post any bulletin board material for the opposition during the season.

Twitter is a way a player can legally build up his brand while still in college. Vic Hampton is great at using twitter. JFF is an example of a train wreck with twitter. (He does not play for the Gamecocks.) I think that Ray and/or Spurrier are ahead of the curve on social media and outright bans are counter-productive to players that know how to use twitter for brand building. I also suspect we have someone in the AD giving some really good training on there usage.

i agree. instead of flat twitter bans teach the the guys some control and responsibility. if one of their's becomes an issue handle it with them one on one. it will help to curb the nonsense that happens with nfl players on a regular basis
