    Anonymous Twitter account launched yesterday.

    First of several tweets describing a gang rape off campus, and the lack of support she received from the school.

    Does it ring true? Will this result in a full investigation, and will it result in media attention?

    BYU is attracting some unwanted attention as women who report being raped and then being questioned through the school's honor code office regarding violations regsrding being in the bedroom of those of the opposite sex, curfew violations concerning people of the opposite sex being in an apartment after a certain time, and alcohol and/or drug use.

    It won't be splayed all over the news.

    Nobody in the media wants to be seen as picking on an HBCU.

    Who knows what attention it gets on facebook and Twitter and the like. Probably quite a bit.

    Reputable news outfits would struggle to do anything with it that satisfied the victim.

    The police have already cleared them, they are no longer suspects
