Facebook And Twitter Banned?

Fans of Facebook and Twitter look out, the Military and the NFL are reportedly working to ban social networks. Chris Matyszczyk picked it up over at CNET.com:

No more Twittering. No more friending. And definitely no more updating people on your latest moods, feelings, lovers, and hangnails.
Yes, in what seems like a concerted effort on the part of traditional culture, two highly similar organizations, the Marines and the NFL, have decided to fight back against all the careless talk.
They have each reportedly begun to ban Twitter and Facebook.

Could it be the beginnings of a trend? Or another fruitless attempt to control the uncontrollable?
