Good piece on how frauds are impacting the way hockey fans follow news on Twitter. The funniest thing about the article: the example of @HockeyInsiderr getting it right with Jaromir Jagr-to-Dallas was a blatant copy job of a tweet Id originally sent out 5-10 minutes prior to him.

Tragic final blog from Jessica Redfield (Ghawi) about narrowly missing tragedy at the Easton Centre shooting in Toronto months ago before she was reportedly among the dozen or so killed in the Aurora, Colorado movie theatre in the early morning hours on Friday. Its eerie and horrific all at the same time especially considering that I clearly recall communicating back and forth with Redfield a few times over the last couple of years as she got a hockey media career started. Ken Fang of Fangs Bites also did a good job recapping the information known about the aspiring young sportscaster living and working in Colorado.
