Harvard Medical School plans to revise a new student policy that would have restricted students' interaction with the news media, according to The New York Times. The policy, which referred only to traditional media, but not sites like Twitter, stated:
All interactions between students and the media should be coordinated with the Office of the Dean of Students and the Office of Public Affairs. This applies to situations in which students are contacted by the media as well as instances in which students may be seeking publicity about a student-related project or program.

But after some students complained, the school removed the new rule, Harvard officials said.
