Anyone can make a twitter and a blog and start throwing out wild speculations like "Burke talking to Chiarelli about Seguin!! Stay tuned!!!!!" to feed the imagination of hopeful (or upset) fans and get the fire going. Worst case scenario, "eh uh Burke just asked him, man. Meant nuthin' in the end".
yes, anyone can and many do. but people need to give some credit when its due, look at some of these twitters that pop up, or some guys like incarcerated bob, they make Eklund look like McKenzie. Which tells me he is less than a real reporter (which we all know anyways) but more than some people give him credit for.
