So John Tortorella hates Twitter. Surprised? Of course not. Here’s what he had to say (courtesy of Ben Kuzma from the Province): It’s the most narcissistic thing I’ve ever seen. I’m not going to handcuff them and treat them like little kids. There’d better be no information come out of the locker room with that damn Twitter. It’s nothing but trouble to me. But I also respect that social media and all that stuff is part of it and I need to respect that and I’m going to try. But our locker room is our locker room, and I believe our guys understand that. I just hope they respect the sanctity of the locker room — that’s the most important thing to me. I think it (Twitter) is stupid, but it’s tremendous for charity work, and our dog walk in New York raised a ton of money. But not for: ‘Here I am having a roast beef sandwich and saying hello to my fans.’ That’s just ridiculous. Are you as fired up as I am after reading that? Lets go! I love Twitter, but I love that Tortorella hates it. Of course it can be very narcissistic (especially for celebrities). It’s also pretty funny that he’s worried about top secrets being unearthed from the locker room. Is this a problem with anyone? Maybe they should hire scouts to scour opposing players’ accounts to find out strategic advantages?
