The University of Washington is counting your tweets and will punish you

The University of Washington, however, seems to have taken it upon itself to be more than just an athletic department. Yes, the Huskies staffers are the full-scale Twitter police. Per Awful Announcing:
Todd Dybas, a reporter for the Tacoma News Tribune and a contributor to SI.com, was reprimanded by the University of Washington on Sunday during the Huskies 85-63 win over Loyola (MD). Did he leave the area to which the press is restricted? Did he eat too much free food? Was he openly cheering for the visiting team? Talking too loud on his phone? Nope, he tweeted too much.
Who thought up this policy and why? How did they decide 20 tweets was the gold standard? What if the game goes into overtime? So many questions. Such a weird policy.
