Avs FANS on Twitter

We all know what players tweet, but which of you guys do?

Post your twitter name here. I follow some of you, but would be interested to follow more.

My name is @WHLFromAbove

I did, around the draft and Free agency, never really figured out how it worked though as in how to get others to SEE what I'm saying other than my followers. My only idea was to do @whoever was tweeting and then if they replied others would see mine.

I gave up after a couple of days. Now I'm too far gone to go back I think...if I don't get on the wagon right away I never want to.

You just have to tweet about interesting stuff and things you do/see. Eventually you will gain followers.

I started last February and already have almost 650 followers.

And not everyone does it to gain followers. It's a great way to simply follow people and get up to the second information on anything you are interested.

Don't you need to like...hashtag stuff or something for it to be sorted into certain areas or something?

Like when I tweet...where does that go? just some huge "happening now" live stream list?

I tweet...but am not in it for the Followers, I'm only in it for information...I tweet occasionally, but usually I tweet people back and forth.

@TheRockLobst3r

I've tweeted Dater a bit, he's a big Beatles fan like myself, so we will chit-chat about that from time to time, other than that, I only use it to follow players and get updates from the TSN crew and the like...

I used to follow Incarcerated Bob, because I believed that he was pretty good and breaking certain things (as far as I know he was the 1st to tweet about Manning being done for the year, had it about 5 days before everyone else)...but I started noticing that he wasn't REALLY breaking ALL of the things that he said he was...plus he's a cocky-a** ******* because he's always trying to downplay others, for instance, I believe there's been a couple of times that Hockey Break's twitter has had some info before everyone else has, but he's just recently started trying to discredit him.

And to top it all off, he was the one who helped fuel the "Stastny to Toronto" rumors by always tweeting during Free Agency/NHL Draft that Burke was "90% done getting his man Stastny", and going as far as saying that "Dwight Howard is DONE to LA, will get annoucned in a couple of days" and then when it doesn't get announced starts name calling everyone who is calling him out on it...

Anyways, yeah, I'm @TheRockLobst3r, and now I've got someone else to follow, which is you RS!

Agreed. I don't mind it for it's news application. Seeing "Whew, just drank ma juice!", or some nonsense, every 17 seconds through someones day...is, enough to make me wish the human race was gone.

Just in case we need another source for "Worst team ever, sky is falling, fire Sacco" messages?

Don't really tweet much, most of my tweets are to hockey players/people. Had a few good convos, probably the best one was with Winnik in the offseason. Pretty much on twitter for the up to the second hockey news.

LOVE Twitter.

@Av_merican

I don't really tweet too often, but I find it a great information/news gathering/networking tool.

I mostly RT and that I do a lot. I have almost 8000 tweets IIRC. Don't have many followers (~20) but I don't care for followers all that much since I RT most of the stuff just so one of my friends sees it.

I will tweet a lot after games. Will say my opinion on who performed in that game, and keys of the game. I ask a lot of questions to some hockey knowledge around the world so that people can see what they have to say about some matters. Sometimes, I like it better of talking about the Avs on there than on here because I'm not always on my computer and will always have my mobile on me.

@LevePoteten

I use it mostly to get information, but tweet every now and then about the Avs. And it's more often not in Norwegian, I'm sure all you guys understand the language ;-)
