Unsportmanlike Tweeting?

This Twitter phenomenon is getting out-of-hand and just plain silly:

The National Basketball Association has fined Dallas Mavericks' owner Mark Cuban $25,000 for unsportsmanlike Twittering for his online comment about referees, The Dallas Morning News reports.

After Friday's game with the Nuggets, Cuban used the interactive site to question why a technical foul wasn't called on a Nugget player for taunting.

What, pray tell, is "sportsmanlike Twittering"?  In fact, is Twitter a sport at all?
