I guess you have some decisions to make. Keep following him or don't.

I follow him to hear about MSU athletics. Not his politics

I agree. He needs 2 Twitter accounts, one for MSU sports information and another for his personal politics.

He doesn't post much about MSU anyway. Just unfollow him.

Sorry your feelings were hurt enough to start a thread on BN. You can unfollow.

Sounds like a personal problem.

Wow, complaining about someone using his personal Twitter account to post...gasp...oh no...his opinions. :roll: The Unfollow button is apparently more difficult to find than your caps lock key.

happens all the time, people post stupid ****** in their personal twitter and they face repercussions at work. Case in point is all the people up in arms about Trumps tweets, that is his personal account, if people don't like it they should unfollow I agree. Personally I don't have BL on my twitter, I do have Trump though.

I don't have a problem with him expousing his own opinions, or re-tweeting political opinions.
But if he's doing it on state time, with state owned equipment (computer, phone, etc.) he may have a problem.

Interesting that others in the athletic department post things that are not MSU oriented yet Bill is the one getting called out.

The MSU sports info director should have a professional Twitter account specifically for MSU sports info. Then he could use a personal account for anything he wanted.
Just like the MSU sports accounts on Facebook don't have politics on them.

Not a big deal to me, just seems odd that he doesn't separate the two.

I don't get the gif, Fomo is fear of missing out, not fear of making decisions.

Official twitter accounts for MSU are Bobcat athletics and each teams official account. Everybody else would be considered personal accounts. This whole topic is because of political views.

Gotcha. Ya if it's his personal account then he can tweeet whatever he wants. Just seems like there should be a professional account for his job.

I've relied on people who work at schools my entire life for their vast knowledge of history, politics and the economy. They've always had all the intellectual answers to everything :wink:

I have to say that I wasn't happy when I saw that people were starting whole threads about politics in the Montana State football forum because I think it is emotionally charged, nobodies opinion is going to change, generally devolves into name calling, and is mostly irrelevant. It is annoying enough when people make backhanded comments about it. I have to admit though, the conversation has been of a far higher quality, than I expected (for the most part).

One thing I want to say is that I am happy to live in a state where freedom is still legal :wink: , and people can express themselves how they please. The country in general has forgotten the importance of this. I'm glad Montana hasn't.

PS: does it feel like a slow news day to anyone else?

A state employee is not allowed to use state time and/or state equipment for political purposes - whether it is a personal account or not (that includes personal email too)
If they are using their own personal equipment, on their own time, then it is ok.
