Chicago Bears: Should Team Adopt a No Twitter Policy?

By now, most people have heard about the Twitter ban that has taken affect in the Cincinnati Bengals' locker room.

If not, here's the story in a nutshell.

Rookie cornerback Dre Kirkpatrick apparently crossed a line this past week, by tweeting about an injury before it went official through the team.

Management wasn't too happy about this, so they decided to enact a Twitter ban for at least the rest of training camp to make sure that players focus on football and preparing for the season, not on tweeting and being distracted.

The part about being distracted is fine, but should teams really ban players and coaches from using Twitter, even when off the field?
