NFL Teams Look to Tackle Tweeting

I heard an interesting segment on a sports radio program today where a member of the media was commenting how NFL teams are unhappy that the media and fans are using Twitter to post comments about things they are observing during the current NFL pre-season training camps. Various NFL teams are attempting to stop the unrestrained tweeting by employing methods ranging from simply requesting the media not use Twitter to banning Twitter usage by fans during practices. Some teams are also trying to ban media members from using Twitter on their cell phone while on the sidelines for the upcoming regular season.

I just thought that this was a very interesting revelation as to how social media has grown so quickly over the last year. The Twitter “problem” was absolutely non-existent during last year’s NFL training camp yet it seems to be on the minds of every team’s management this year.
