UAAP to players, coaches: Think twice before you tweet-A A +A
Tuesday, July 10, 2012
AFTER the controversy stirred by unflattering messages posted by professional cager Don Allado on micro-blogging site Twitter, the University Athletic Association of the Philippines (UAAP) reminded players and coaches to think twice before they tweet.
The UAAP has not yet crafted any social media policy to deal with online accusations against the league but that doesn’t mean it will sit idly.
“Anything comes out, the board will convene and discuss and decide,” UAAP president Nilo Ocampo of host National University told reporters.
Last week, Allado was ordered to pay P500,000 and banned to play for one conference after he accused the Philippine Basketball Association (PBA) of game fixing.
The UAAP comes off the wraps on July 14 at the Mall of Asia Arena in Pasay City.
Founded in 1938, the UAAP groups some of the country’s top higher education institutions, namely: Adamson University, Ateneo de Manila University, De La Salle University, Far Eastern University, NU, University of the East, University of the Philippines and University of Santo Tomas.
