The National Football League’s Twitter account deleted an account with a message that read “We are sorry we cannot make you an offer” and added: “Sorry for any inconvenience.
We have a great team.”
But the league’s owners, who have the power to cut or sell a team, said the account was “suspended pending further investigation.”
A statement from the league said: “We have received a request from the NFL for information regarding the Twitter account of the Dallas Cowboys and will look into it.
It is a violation of the NFL’s terms of service and is not being allowed.”NFL spokesman Brian McCarthy said the NFL had not received a formal complaint about the account.”
We have no information to suggest that the account has been compromised, and we have no reason to believe that it is,” McCarthy said.NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell, who was asked Tuesday whether there were any reports of the account being hacked, said: “(Twitter) has a strong security system and a strong team that’s looking to make sure that there are no threats or hacks.”
The Twitter account, @DALLASDOTN, has nearly 8.5 million followers.
