I mainly use it to follow NHL reporters and players and Twitter is becoming pretty mainstream amongst my friends. The most fame I've ever had was a retweet from Bobby Ryan.
I've never been retweeted but I've been featured A LOT in Jim Cerny interviews like with Gordie Clark and Jeff Gorton at the draft, Jim used my question that I sent in about the Russian Factor. Oh yeaaaa
Jaime Lannister has better hands than Brian Boyle.
I mostly follow reporters and NHL players, but also tweet zipperhead, spector, davelozo, etc and to my shock they usually reply. I also harass *************** about the Islanders but he never retweets it.
Also see the occasional Tampa Bay Lightning news or info since I go to their games as a STH.
I was on vacation in California in Anaheim and he tweeted how he would be at the HockeyMonkey store that day, I took the public transportation to the store and there was a line full of fans, I talked to him for 5 minutes about BizNasty, Boogaard's death, where I play hockey and got a few things shown above signed. Great guy and an awesome American-born player!
ive had questions read on the interviews and stuff...i guess my biggest claim to fame was MSG.com using my blog on their site...they used to feature some of my writeups on the site itself....then they took off everything once their own reporters started blogging.
