Looks like it's been deleted. What did it say?

I don’t see it as deleted?

Kind of a weird tweet if it is taunting the American Conference. The MW should be fighting to be the 6th best conference, not just laughing at another mid major conference for not being a major one.

It’s an incredibly dumb Twitter joke format that’s going around right now, insinuating that saying a certain thing is a “red flag”.

I don’t mind trying to throw shade at other conferences, but this is a dumb way to do it. At least be clever.

There seems to be some speculation in the comments on that Tweet that the MWC might expand with UNT and UTSA.

I saw a USU tweet today with the flags in it, it must be something we're not clued in on

Yeah, like @stang mentioned, it has been all the rage on Twitter the past two days. You state something that you would consider a "red flag" (as in a warning to others) followed by the red flag emoji. :roll:

:noidea: I don't know....I don't get Twitter....or most forms of social media.

The ease of access, speed of information, coupled with the somewhat younger demographic, on Twitter allows for what I'll call micro-fads. Trends the come and go faster than many of us care to track them. You won't see these red flags again within a few days, except for the occasional old person that finally figures out what it is, wants to get on the bandwagon, but will ultimately be ignored and/or ridiculed by the "in" crowd that has already gone through two or three subsequent micro-fads.

Yeah, I'm usually one of those old persons. It hurts. I cry sometimes.

That was how I see it. I'm all for conference smack talk, but this is a pretty lame attack by the MW.

So it’s a red flag to have leadership that actively tries to promote and sell their product? I’m sorry but this really irks me. We’re poking fun at another conference for not being major, when we’ve been even further away from that.. They’ve consistently had more NY6 bowl invites and NCAA tourney bids while we’ve been cool staying mediocre. Bad look from the conference on this one.
