If you were searching for Alabama football on Twitter on Thursday morning, it was impossible to find any results.

Per AL.com's Michael Casagrande, the Crimson Tide's account was suspended due to a copyright violation stemming from the use of a remixed song in a video posted on June 27. 

It didn't take long for Alabama football's Twitter account to come back online:

This marks the fourth such Twitter suspension for Alabama football this year. The official copyright holder on the song in question wasn't listed.

Head coach Nick Saban will likely find a way to use this as motivation for his team as the Tide prepare to defend their national championship.
