Twitter CEO Commits NCAA Violation - Lost Lettermen

Twitter CEO Commits NCAA Violation

July 29th, 2013| by

Having graduated from Michigan in 1985, Twitter CEO Dick Costolo is a Wolverines booster as far as the NCAA is concerned. Thus, the tweet below — directed in part at George Campbell, a Class of 2015 wide receiver who recently committed to UM — is an NCAA violation.

According to NCAA rules, boosters are not allowed to “contact a prospect by telephone, email, Internet or letter.” Costolo’s at-mention of Campbell falls under the third one.
