John Tortorella isn't Twitter's biggest fan

Social media is used a lot these days by either professional athletes, analysts and coaches. Most are open to using Twitter, but there are quite a bit of players and coaches who absolutely refuse using Twitter.

New Vancouver Canucks’ coach John Tortorella is one of those coaches against using Twitter but has an account himself. He said it’s only used for charitable purposes.

“I think I’ve been a little behind as far as this social media and all the stuff that goes on with that. I do have a Twitter account and I use it solely for charities. It was a huge success for some of the things we did with animal welfare in New York. But, quite honestly, I think that Twitter and tweeting is one of the most narcissistic things I’ve ever seen, as far as people saying, “I’m here doing this. There better be nothing coming out of our locker room, as far as what goes on there” John Tortorella told Pro Hockey Talk.

He might need to have a talk with Roberto Luongo who happens to be a pretty active Twitter user.
