I made one to keep up on hockey rumors by following guys like Mackenzie and Dreger.

I haven't used it in a long time since I usually read them on HF first lol

Yeah he is. It's getting really creepy how obsessed he is with Twitter and the Leafs on it. Note how "happy" he is that Burke is on now. Makes me uncomfortable.

Haha he's funny. Very passionate. I don't have a twitter account so I don't really understand the fuss about it.

I don't have it either and don't intend to get it. If there's any interesting news, I'm sure it'll be posted on here anyway.

I don't have twitter but I imagine that having a public profile will attract haters for public personalities. Fans pay to see these guys pay, but these guys don't get paid to get verbally abused by people so good on those who pick and choose their battles and don't lay down for all of these keyboard warriors.

I made one awhile back, but twitter is kind of useless for anything but following important people. I use it to follow a heck of a lot of media guys, and players/staff from the Leafs/Marlies.

Like Tracking a guy like Eakins pays off, and you rarely see his comments posted here:

Quote:
dallaseakins Dallas Eakins
@TorontoMarlies Colborne is very close to returning. Boyce and Caputi...not so much. Dale Mitchell is inching closer to a return as well.
That was yesterday, just an example.

I'd do it if I still lived in Toronto.

Minus the last part.

Many when you grow up, you can be an NHL GM and fire a coach yourself.

I have twitter, but I mostly use it to follow that @Jeffler dude.

Can't wait to find out what his account is, should be interesting. Lets just hope people don't flood him with stupid trade proposals, though they totally will.

With that aside, I'm pretty sure the majority of people online following this team; will care about an extra news source. Especially one directly from the GM himself.

I'm glad the title of the thread didn't deter you in wanting to read the topic, and then finding out you didn't care about it!

I guess that "voice of reason" has a bit of a delay.
You're welcome, always glad to contribute and always the voice of reason.

Good. It's hardly useless, it has information in it. It was just information you didn't like thus you got your panties in a knot and felt the need to hate.

You don't need twitter. Go to his twitter URL, it's accessible by anyone. It's just a website.

You have to appreciate Leaf Nation for this, finding out Brian Burke has twitter BEFORE Brian Burke has twitter.

That's awesome.
