The Iowa and Iowa State football teams found rare, uncommon ground this weekend. The two teams, for some reason, had their Twitter accounts suspended. Fans from both schools were unable to pull up the accounts of either the Cyclones or Hawkeyes football teams. A message read that “Twitter suspends accounts that violate the Twitter rules” when both were attempted to be viewed Saturday. Iowa spokesperson Steve Roe said in an email to The Register Saturday that the Hawkeyes had two accounts suspended: football and women’s gymnastics. “Two University of Iowa Athletics Department official twitter accounts have been suspended due to music copyright infringement in a limited number of posts in 2018,” Roe wrote. Iowa State spokesperson Mike Green said the school was “currently looking into the matter with Twitter.” -Tommy Birch, Des Moines Register. Read More.
