Please ban "Twitter sources"

I know I know I might be in the minority here but seriously, everyone can make a stupid (fake) Twitter account claiming they are "Dreger, Lebrun" aso. All it does is taking away attention from real (proven) sources, so how about removing twitter sources?

well most people knows the real accounts for Mackenzie, Leburn, Dreger etc, I don't see what the big deal is.

Awards:
Considering most legitmate sources (a la Dreger, Lebrun, McKenzie, etc) use Twitter as the primary means to get their news out there, that sounds entirely counterproductive.

If we ban Twitter sources because some of them aren't legit, we might as well ban anything that isn't an official source from the team or the league.
