Virginia newspaper sues ex-writer
Tuesday, August 7, 2018
Andy Bitter, who now covers Virginia Tech for the Athletic, is being sued by his old newspaper, the Roanoke Times, over a Twitter handle.
Bitter, who held the same position with the Times before joining the Athletic, inherited his Twitter handle from the person who held his job before him in 2010.
The lawsuit filed by the Times claims Bitter must hand back the handle based on precedent. The account — @AndyBitterVT — has over 27,000 followers.
