Dallas Cowboys DE Greg Hardy has quit Twitter, and it might be the greatest decision of his young career.

Former Carolina Panthers defensive end Greg Hardy may have made the best decision of his young career, today as he quit Twitter.  That was after Hardy tweeted a response to a Carolina Panthers fan who tweeted a photo of Kelvin Benjamin and the team’s second-round pick, Devin Funchess, calling them “The Twin Towers.”

Hardy replied: “didn’t the twin towers get blowN up lol.” He later deleted the tweet and apologized.

He quickly deleted the tweet, but it was too late the damage had been done. The Cowboys talked to Hardy that night about the tweet, and issued this statement.

“I think it’s important to just have great discipline with [social media],” Garrett said. “I’m not someone who is on Twitter. I understand that a lot of people are, and that’s part of the fabric of our culture these days. But I just think it’s important for guys to use it the right way. We try to emphasize that to our guys. ‘Distinguish yourself with your play, not with what you say,’ is something we talk about all the time. That’s just another medium that we have to address.

“Some guys just need reinforcement one way or the other when they reach out and do some of those things. It’s all a learning process. None of us are perfect so we’re just trying to address it as these things come up.”

Hardy just stated on Twitter he is done with Twitter.
