Twitter Perspective

A mention of one of our media people, Chris Bahn, writing about the social media policy here at Arkansas. Bahn contrasts Arkansas' point guard, Rotnei Clarke, and he decision to dump his Twitter account with previous players and other schools in the league who've had some Twitter issues. Men's basketball coach John Pelphrey is quoted by Bahn:

"It’s constant education. Social media is not going anywhere. ... The first thing they need to understand is it is media, first and foremost."

Let's give some kudos here. Pel's comment recognizes the real world. Many know last year Coach Pelphrey was dealing with a player and tweets. If you didn't, Bahn gives a recap.

And full disclosure, I wrote the policy Bahn is talking about.
