Twitter Update

A few months ago I posted a list of current and former Wisconsin hockey players on twitter as well as media that cover the team as well as the WCHA. I figured I'd give it an update as the list of active players in the twitter game has doubled since the time of my last post.

Twitter has become one of the best hockey and more specifically WCHA hockey resources on the Internet. Virtually every WCHA team beat writer has an account, as do most WCHA fan bloggers. It's become a great source to communicate with writers from around the league and NCAA hockey even if you are just a fan.

I (obviously) have an account that I link to on every one of my posts. If you started following me last year, check to make sure you still are because I deleted my account the last time I pulled a Favre and retired over the summer and had to start a new one and lost all my followers. You can find my twitter account here.
