Missouri football fans awoke Wednesday to find a strange sight online: the program’s Twitter account had been suspended.
On National Signing Day.
Shawn Davis, the Assistant Director of Strategic Communications for Mizzou football and baseball, posted on Twitter: “Twitter dinged us and probably every other football account for using copyrighted songs. Been using them for years, but they just started making claims in the last week.”
Never miss a local story.
Davis told The Star that he believed the Twitter suspension happened at some point on Tuesday night.
There was one residual effect: Missouri’s football account had just 56 followers at 8 a.m. That makes it tough to get the word out about players who have signed with the program.
