Twitter Suspends Multiple College Football Accounts Ahead of National Signing Day


If you've been on Twitter lately, you may have noticed something strange happening in the college football world. 

Big college football team accounts, from Georgia to Texas, were suspended ahead of National Signing Day. It couldn't have happened at a worse possible time seeing as though teams like to tweet out their newest signees.

Although many teams got their accounts restored, it seemed the reasoning behind it was due to DCMA and RIAA takedown notices. Basically the teams didn't get permission to use the music they sometimes embedded in videos of their players working out, dancing, and just being themselves.

Although teams are working hard to get their accounts and verification restored, it will be interesting to see how they navigate the music issue moving forward.
