No more tweeting for Nationals' Harper
VIERA, Fla. -- Nationals outfielder Bryce Harper decided to delete his Twitter account, @BHarp3407, recently. It comes a week after the Nationals had a team meeting about social media.

"I think it comes from the media day that we had. We had some comments from some teammates. That was the result," manager Davey Johnson said.

Harper was a popular figure on Twitter. He often spoke his mind, and said he wanted the fans to know who he was. Sometimes, however, people in the Nats' front office were perturbed when he spoke his mind.

"I like to interact with fans. I want them to know who I am and what I am," Harper said earlier this month. "That's just the way I am. They will know the real me. I want everyone to know the real me."
