MANHATTAN -- The New York City Ballet is enacting a new social media policy after one of its dancers took some jabs at choreographers and other co-workers on Twitter, the Wall Street Journal reported.

"Because social media usage has dramatically increased and will continue to do so, like many organizations, the company is exploring the development of social media guidelines for all artistic and administrative employees with respect to their professional lives," Katherine Brown, executive director of the NYCB, said in a statement cited by the Journal.
