CORAL GABLES, Fla. (AP) - Miami's football players have been told to shut down their Twitter accounts.
The university's athletic communications department says the players were urged to do so with hopes of limiting distractions and keeping focus on football.
And yes, that statement was released through on the athletic department's Twitter feed.
Several of Miami's top players have been prolific posters on Twitter, including quarterback Jacory Harris, defensive tackle Marcus Forston and defensive back DeMarcus Van Dyke. It's unknown how many players had accounts.
