Todd Dybas, a reporter for the Tacoma News Tribune and a contributor to SI.com, was repremanded by the University of Washington on Sunday during the Huskies 85-63 win over Loyola (MD). Did he leave the area to which the press is restricted? Did he eat too much free food? Was he openly cheering for the visiting team? Talking too loud on his phone? Nope, he tweeted too much.
Also, tonight I was reprimanded by the University of Washington for tweeting too much during a live event.— Todd Dybas (@Todd_Dybas) November 12, 2012
It turns out that the university has a policy which only allows credentialed media to send 20 tweets during a basketball game. And the university "reserves all actions against Credential Holder, including but not limited to the revocation of the credential. UW and its designated personnel shall be the final authority on whether a Credential Holder or Credential Entity is following the Live Coverage Policy."
In other words, they monitor your tweets. And count them on a clicker.no comments
