An internal ESPN memo was leaked to John Koblin yesterday detailing ESPN's strict social media policy. With ESPNers daring to (gasp!) speak out and offer personal opinions publicly, ESPN executives have to be diligent in slapping wrists, wagging fingers, and shooting stern looks. After all, ESPN can't afford another reckless firebrand like Bill Simmons to do anything crazy on Twitter like criticize Skip Bayless. ESPN can't afford such outlandish things as people engaging with critics or fans, discussing sports without the sanctioning of ESPN, or offering any opinions about anything.
It must be difficult for ESPN to track so many potential offendors of their social media policy with hundreds of employees active on social media. Nearly every tweet sent could be a possible violation worthy of suspension or worse. With that in mind, we want to help the Bristol social media police and bring to light just a few violators of ESPN's social media policy from the past couple days. Ya know, just in case they missed anybody. We're here to do what little we can to assist ESPN in this quest to clamp down on needless expression and individualism.no comments
