    Default Best Super-Duper list of Twitter Insiders/Beat Writers to follow for every team

    We have a similar thread for team websites, but not twitter...

    I'm not on Twitter (I know I know...) but I thought we should put together a page where everyone can post their favorite or best insiders to follow, whether general insider or team specific insider/writer.

    Or even great hockey related twitter accounts

    Be nice to consolidate everything here.

    So folks, who/what ya got!?

    I threw a "sticky" on this thread.
    I tried once to do Twitter - and then found it too disruptive to my day.

    But I do find that many of the best fantasy GMs in my league allow it to hound/alert them all day long.
    So... since this is the future... bam, lock it up at the top for all to find!

    *Nice idea.

    I plan to keep updating the first OP with everyone's adds - if they're obscure or lesser known - be kind and identify if they're an insider or cover one specific team.

    Since I mostly spend my time focusing on prospects, I can mostly just recommend guys who can provide information about them.

    I spent parts of two days going through this site and multiple searches trying to make sure there wasn't one already. It appears to be several years old, so I'll set aside some time next week and pull a lot of the account names/users over to merge the lists. Some have changed handles Siegel was the 1st one I noticed.

    Thanks Axe.

    Sure the more active twitter users already know this but for those that don't, you can find a lot of good "Lists" dedicated to this exact purpose. Some contain hundreds of quality NHL-related accounts.
