One bad tweet can be costly to a student athlete

One bad tweet can be costly to a student athlete | Responsible Digital Citizenship | Scoop.it

Three years ago, Scott Fitch couldn't believe what he was hearing. A college coach recruiting two of his Fairport High School boys basketball players called to say how much he liked what he saw after watching them play an AAU game, and that he thought both were good enough to see court time on his team as freshmen.

 

"But we're going to stop recruiting one of them," the college coach said.

 

Stunned, Fitch asked why.

 

"We found his Twitter account, looked through it and some of what we saw isn't representative of what our university is about," the recruiter explained.

EdTechSandyK's insight:
