During a recent radio interview Bengals head coach Marvin Lewis gave on 700 WLW's Sports Talk, he went into two semi-rants about Twitter. Players talking about their injuries or becoming a big deal that shouldn't; either way if twitter were terrorism, Marvin Lewis would be Rambo, Jack Bauer and Commando wrapped into one.

Though he can't single-handedly shut down twitter (yet), it appears he's at least addressing the point that he has the most control over from a series of tweets by Bengals beat writers.

Joe Danneman of Fox19 says that Lewis placed restrictions on tweets by players, telling them not to tweet about the team.
