Ravens Disastrously Live Tweet Ray Rice Press Conference

(CBS) Common sense is a real skill, folks, and can be an elusive one at that.

Just ask those running the Baltimore Ravens’ official Twitter account.

In February, star running back Ray Rice was charged with assault following an incident with his then-fiancee and now-wife Janay Palmer. Hotel video surfaced that appeared to show Rice dragging Janay out of an elevator. Since then, all had been quiet, and while Rice may have the charges dropped through a pre-trial intervention program, it doesn’t make this episode any less ugly.

On Friday afternoon, Rice and Janay broke their silence in a press conference. And the Ravens’ Twitter account was there to disastrously live tweet it.

To be fair, Rice was very apologetic, but we’re still going to file these in the “Things professional sports teams shouldn’t tweet from their official account” department — especially the first two. Take a gander.
