So I finally decided to get a smartphone after holding out for quite a while. I just had no desire to pay $30 a month for a data plan b/c I think it's ridiculous but I finally said "F" it, I want one. Anyways, I'm really, really liking these Twitter updates and I want to know who are the best hockey personalities to follow (or non hockey if it's really entertaining or something).

So far I'm following,

Bob McKenzie
EJ Hradek
BizNasty
Buccigross (who goes nuts on there with a ton of posts every day)
Kypreos
pghpenguins
Mike Rupp
Rob Rossi


Any other ideas? I'm sure I'm missing out on plenty.

You'll find that a lot of those guys will just repost what the others have said. You'll be able to sort everything out right around the deadline, see who is worthwhile to keep following.

Is the Demitra one for real? There were some real off-color tweets in his feed...

MikeColligan for the Hockey Writers and JoeDepto for the Fourth Period (he broke the Martin signing really early)

Dan Rosen is relatively new, and covers the Eastern Conference for NHL.com.

Tarik El Bashir covers basketball now - thus I quit following, but that's a pretty solid list.

What LGP'ers have Twitter???

@whodeany16 FOLLOW ME!

I'm new to the whole twitter thing and mainly just use it to follow hockey related accounts for breaking news/player info etc. Being in the US, I don't have the luxury of TSN on the tv all day... this is basically my version of in depth coverage!

I follow all of these besides DownGoesBrown. I'll be adding that and still picking on Pompeani about how horrible he is. Thanks for helping out on that Boni. Haha.

Nothing beats this tweet from Whitney (from early March when he joined twitter):
Just saw Crosby is STILL top 10 in league scoring. Thats a sick joke. The league needs him to get healthy. #thanksformycontractsid
