Kawika on tweeting

In the wake of the fine for San Diego’s Antonio Cromartie for criticizing the food at Chargers training camp on a tweet, players are being asked if they’re more mindful about what they’re discussing on their twitter accounts. Kawika Mitchell weighed in on the subject Thurdsay.

“I don’t think it is something to really try to be strict about,” said Mitchell. “We have a right to speak, obviously some guys need to watch what they say, you cannot just go off the wall and say whatever you want.  If you want to complain or if you want to just say what you want to say, that is our voice, so why not?  Good thing we have a great coach here and he is pretty understanding, he isn’t too concerned about it.  So as far as we’re concerned I am not bothered by it.”

When asked if any subject matter should be off limits on Twitter for players, Mitchell had a few things he saw as out of bounds.

 “Just the common sense type things,” he said. “You don’t want to be stupid; you don’t want to go on there saying things about your teammate.  Coach talked about talking about the opponent, and not trying to give them material- you don’t want to do things like that.  But, have fun with it that is what it’s there for.”
