Burke's 1st tweet is great:

I plan to use my Twitter account to inform fans, hopefully entertain you and to provide clarity about the #Leafs, when needed.

So here's the question: Is it really @LeafsBB20 Brian Burke on Twitter or is a team PR flak doing what he thinks is the right thing?

Is Twitter big enough for Brian Burke? We'll find out soon. You can follow him @LeafsBB20 Wonder who gets blocked first.

I took it as Simmons was obviously phishing for a reply, and Burke retorted with a you are a nothing reply. We all know Simmoms MO, seen his act for years.

Here was Simmons reply to Burke's, the guy is as obvious as a 5 cent hooker.

Don't get all the hate for Simmons.

I think he is an intelligent realist.

I believe he is employed by the Toronto Sun, which is in a direct conflict of interest with the bolded word above.

a 'realist' must be capable of admitting failure when surprised by the unlikely event of something going against realism. simmons does no such thing. therefore, he's not a 'realist'. since he's clearly not an 'optimist' he must be a 'pessimist' and they are no fun. therefore, that is the hate for simmons.
