The Twitter handle of the Ohio Women's Crew club team at Ohio University is causing quite a stir on Twitter today.

This afternoon, Ohio University re-tweeted the Ohio Women's Crew team had joined Twitter under the handle @ohiowomenscrew.

The Ohio University post was retweeted all across the nation because the handle can be read as "Ohio Women Screw."

A member of the crew team says she accidentally left the team's Twitter account logged in on a computer or tablet when she was testing them at a store. From there, she believes someone accessed the account and changed the handle from the original @ohiowomencrew.

The account has since been deleted.  The team member says she has no immediate plans to re-instate the Twitter handle.

Ohio University Spokeswoman Katie Quaranta says the university has no comment on the issue.
