Just as employers see posts/tweets created by employees so too do both high school and college coaches. With the continued rise of social media, student athletes at both the high school and college levels must understand that anything they post/tweet or otherwise place in the social media sphere is accessible by their coach, athletic director or others in positions of authority. Inappropriate tweets/posts can result in suspension from a team, the end of recruitment or withdrawal of an offer of admission and/or financial support.
