The Power of Twitter in Hockey - Be Real

From Paul Kukla at NHL.com:

One thing I had not really grasped until a few days before UFA Day was Twitter.  I really had no time to figure out exactly how it works and what I did know was I would have to filter the hockey news flowing in from Twitter since many people like to tell you what they are doing throughout the day.

I don’t want to know that a hockey fan in Philadelphia is at an ice cream store.  I don’t care that you just took a shower and I really have no need to see a picture of your dog playing dead.

What I want is hockey news as quickly as possible and Twitter does provide that if you know where to look.  It is much quicker to type “Pronger traded to Philly” and post that on Twitter than it is to post it as a news story on one of the reputable hockey Websites or blogs.
