Hockey Twitter Accounts To Follow For NHL Trade Deadline
The best way to do that is to set up a Twitter account and follow the people who have a history of reporting accurate hockey news and trades as fast as possible, without wasting your time with bogus rumors.
If you "follow" the right people you can get a lot of useful information (ie. trades, signings, waiver claims, injuries) before they are reported on any of the major media outlets or websites.
Many of the major hockey sources now have twitter accounts that are updated regularly and often the updates are just seconds after news is confirmed. I have another list of "Must Follow People On Twitter," but this list has been edited slightly for the best coverage for deadline day. I have removed most players from the below list.
If nothing else, sign up for it and give it a try, it only takes a few minutes. I've put together a comprehensive list of hockey websites, beat writers, players, agents and bloggers that have the best information (in my opinion) and update their pages with mostly hockey information.
The list below is in no real particular order. To follow these people, just go to Twitter and in your internet browser address bar put the name below after the "/". For example, my Twitter account name is "PuckCentral", so my Twitter account url looks like this in the url bar: http://twitter.com/PuckCentral
The entire list is after the page break
