Recruiting violations are hard to police on Twitter. But they’re pretty easy to identify when it’s the CEO of Twitter himself committing the offense.
Wilton Speight, a 2014 quarterback recruit who committed earlier this year, tweeted his congratulations at George Campbell, a 2015 wide receiver recruit, who just committed this past weekend. Both are considered top players in their respective classes.
Dick Costolo, Twitter’s CEO (and a Michigan booster), got a little bit too excited upon hearing that one of the nation’s best recruits chose to play for the Wolverines. He then committed a big no-no.
Boosters are not even allowed to contact recruits after they’ve officially signed a national letter of intent at a university – even on social media.
No, this isn’t a major violation, but it’s pretty funny that not even Twitter’s CEO is safe from making mistakes on the social media platform.
