Yet another example of why I use Twitter and not news sites such as the Leaderpost and CBC (though I do follow @Leaderpost & @CBCSask). On April 29th 1:18 pm the D.C. Sports Bog, of the Washington Post published this article on Saskatchewan’s Brooks Laich of the Washington Capitols. Just forty eight minutes after the story was posted I found it on Twitter and Tweeted this, which was retweeted several times as well as a few comments on the story.
A heart warming story of a professional athlete’s humility and a Saskatchewan boy to boot! You’d think the local news sites would be all over this but it doesn’t seem as though they are. And people still ask me why I’m on Twitter.
