What’s really on their minds? Pro athletes on Twitter

With the NHL trade deadline just weeks away, what better way to keep the spirit of rumors and gossip going than a browse through Twitter? Fans and sports reporters have used the social media site for years now, and it looks like more professional athletes are joining the Twitterverse to chat with us mere mortals. While we don’t think they’d be putting out any juicy insider scoops on possible trades anytime soon, it’s as close as we’ll probably get to hearing what the stars are up to away from the cameras. Some of them tweet about the charitable causes they support (like Vancouver Canucks defenceman Kevin Bieksa on Mindcheck.ca), while others are trenders (see Oilers forward Taylor Hall contemplating a possible name change).

If you’re wondering what your favorite pro athletes are up to away from the cameras, there’s a website called Tweeting-Athletes.com where you can browse through a directory containing Twitter accounts of players from all the major North American sports leagues. Time to hobnob with sporting royalty!

Who are some of your favorites athletes on that list? Let us know who’s tweets make your day!
