Kukla's Korner Hockey

from Paul Bissonnette at The Hockey News,
A lot of attention has been drawn to my Twitter account. Why would a hulking NHL fighter start a Twitter account? I’ll tell you why.
It really started when Scottie Upshall told me I should do it. I thought, “yeah right, that’s pretty lame,” but he would say, “you need to make it fun and it will be.” So I put my own little twist on things. I don’t want to write about the everyday stuff like ‘Oh, I just had lunch’ because everyone does that and who cares?
I have no filter and I like it when I get a rise out of people; that makes it fun. I like to think outside the box and make it fun because that’s my personality. Like Sunday night we were at Jovo’s house and I knew people would wonder, “What’s his kitchen look like?” So I wrote, “Jovo’s kitchen’s bigger than my apartment. More granite.” You think I’m exaggerating? I tell it how it is.
I think fans from all over have followed it and not just those from Phoenix. I’m not getting any more autograph requests or being noticed on the street more than I used to partly because I don’t really post many pictures of myself on Twitter and partly because I’m a fourth-line grinder.
