It’s the quickest way to get all the news from around the NHL, including 140-character comments from several players.
Specific to the Kings, there are already a fair amount of players on twitter, with each bringing their own personality and style.
For example, there’s Dustin Penner. Already known as the quick-witted class clown, you’ll get plenty of tweets that include random movie quotes and references, plus a fair mix of electronic dance music recommendations. But the real treat with Penner are the post-game recaps he thumbs out – seemingly from the locker room because they often go up mere minutes after the action has stopped on the ice.
Then, there’s Mike Richards. If he catches you tweeting a picture of your food, expect a ‘Stop it. You’re better than that.’ type reply. During the off-season he’ll give you some hunting and fishing news too.
Team captain Dustin Brown is a little hit or miss on twitter. He seems to use it regularly and then get bored with it and put it away for a few weeks. Overall, like a good leader, he’s often very supportive of his teammates on twitter.
Jonathan Quick will give you a fair dose of NY Giants football news, especially during football season. He also likes to chirp Matt Moulson whenever he can.
If you’re a Nickelback fan, definitely follow Colin Fraser.
Rookie Jake Muzzin has an account, but doesn’t tweet and is pretty much only there to see what I tweet about him.
But, here’s the real news of the day – you can now add Jarret Stoll to the list. After telling MayorsManor ‘no way, no how, not me’ for the past few years, he reported today that he’s finally caved.
However, there’s one small note. He’s yet to thumb anything out just yet and says he’ll probably limit most of his tweets to the summer. So, you can follow him right now, just don’t expect to see something until the off-season.
UPDATE – June 9, 2012 – his first tweet…
Ok let me give this twitter thing a try! Thank you Kings fans for your great support again this season…see u in Sept!

And one more note, if you’re hoping to see Matt Greene on twitter, it’s just not going to happen – as he explained here. That said, he is an admitted lurker.
