According to Neil Best, the Mets have banned tweeting from Terry Collins’ press conferences. He later tweeted that a reporter is allowed to step out of the room to send his or her tweet.
I, as it should be obvious, do not agree with Best’s stance on the matter – he later tweeted that he finds it “rude and unnecessary.”
Reporters should be free to tweet as they please. The reporters currently handle voice recorders and scribble notes on a pad. Why is a tweet over the line?
I don’t get it.
