ESPN clarifies that tweet with video camera emojis was not about Spygate
The official Twitter account for ESPN’s SportsCenter created a buzz Monday night with a tweet that included emojis of little video cameras sandwiched between little footballs. Why? Because the New England Patriots were playing.
Don’t worry, Pats fans — the person who runs the account wasn’t taking a shot at your team. Or so they say.
CLARIFICATION: We were referencing the numerous replays and length of MNF. It didn’t come across. That's our mistake. We'll be better.

Naturally, there were plenty of people who accused ESPN of making a Spygate reference. Considering the World Wide Later has had to apologize to the Patriots for citing false reports in the past, that’s somewhat understandable.
