The University of Minnesota men’s basketball team has been told to stay off Twitter throughout the 2016-2017 season. University of Minnesota men’s basketball coach Richard Pitino has shut down his Twitter account. 

Twitter is the popular social media network that users can post what is going on in their lives. 

Pitino said that Twitter can be a distraction and that is why he is banning the use of Twitter throughout the season. 

In past seasons players, could use the social media network. Players will still be able to use Facebook and Instagram as well as other social media outlets. 

There also have been issues of players posting inappropriate things on Twitter.
