Paul Johnson Bans Georgia Tech Players From Twitter

After some Georgia Tech Yellow Jacket players tweeted out photos of their new helmet design on Wednesday, Yellow Jacket coach Paul Johnson has banned players from the social media website until at least January, according to the Atlanta Journal Constitution.

The pictures were quickly taken down by the offending players Wednesday, but the pictures had already been widely spread around the college football Twitter-sphere and more by the time the players realized their mistake.

Facebook was not a part of the ban, according to the AJC, but Johnson went as far Thursday as to ask members of the media to tell him if one of his players happened to tweet.

"Let me know if they tweet you," Johnson told the paper. "I've made it 55 years without tweeting. They'll be O.K. till the end of the football season."

Georgia Tech opens its season Saturday against the Virginia Tech Hokies on Monday.
