ETSU investigating 'confessions' Twitter feed

Posted: Updated:

JOHNSON CITY, Tenn. (AP) - East Tennessee State University is investigating who is running a Twitter feed using the school's trademarked logo without the school's permission.

The feed - @ETSUconfessions - allows users to post a variety of comments related to everything from bathroom habits to gossip to questions about sex. School spokesman Joe Smith told The Johnson City Press the feed is not affiliated with the university and using the logo could land the operator in legal hot water.

The operator of @ETSUconfessions, takes posts through a site that allows text to be submitted to the Twitter feed's owner. The administrator can then copy and paste the text directly into tweets without identifying information.
