Fans Being Asked Not to Use Twitter, Blog or use Video Cameras During Camp

The Palm Beach Post reports that fans are being asked to not use Twitter, Blog, or use Video Cameras during practice:

It takes 53 men to fill the roster of the Miami Dolphins – and one finger to send them crumbling down. That’s according to the Dolphins, who this summer began telling fans not to use Twitter, blogs or video cameras to tell the world what the team is up to. Announcements are made at the start of each practice informing crowds, which have exceeded 3,000 at Nova Southeastern University, about the restrictions.

The club says most fans comply, a few have needed a tap on the shoulder and an explanation, and nobody has complained. Why are the Fish doing this? The answer is so easy, it wouldn’t even come close to filling Twitter’s limit of 140 characters, even minus the shorthand. Competitive reasons.
