It was a tweet – not a touchdown celebration – that cost Cincinnati Bengals wide receiver Chad Ochocinco this time.

The NFL fined the reality television star $25,000 for two violations – possessing an electronic device and posting messages on Twitter – during the preseason game against the Philadelphia Eagles last Friday.

NFL players are not permitted to post messages on social media websites starting 90 minutes before kickoff and until postgame media obligations are fulfilled.

Text continues after Pictures of the Week gallery:

Ochocinco posted twice – one at 6:50 p.m. and another at 9:53 p.m. The game kicked off at 8:07 p.m.

The latter was regarding a hit he took in the game.

“Man Im sick of getting hit like that, its the damn preseason [expletive]! 1day I’m gone jump up and start throwing hay makers , #Tylenolplease,” he wrote.
