A Brief History of Sports Writers Getting in Trouble on Twitter

Bill Simmons

Date: 10/26/2009 and 11/10/2009
Website/Publisher: ESPN 

These tweets got Simmons suspended two weeks from Twitter by ESPN. But it was a very fugazi suspension because he was still allowed to tweet about a book he had coming up. Maybe that half-ass punishment is what made him feel he could sling dirt at his own network just a few years later. As for what he said, he targeted Boston radio station WEEI, who had just announced a partnership with ESPN. Simmons criticized the Boston station and called them scumbags.
