Some of the Italian media have decided to boycott Lance Armstrong's Twitter messages and no longer make reference to his messages in their reports. This comes after Armstrong stopped speaking to the media at the Giro.
Today, Armstrong tweeted, "Who says I'm boycotting the press? Marco Casartelli did an interview for his class project!"
