In Canada, there are roughly three legitimate TV companies that provide hockey information now that theScore’s TV channel has been sold to Rogers, and those are TSN, Sportsnet, and CBC (for game coverage). I watch them all.
Being in that group means that Sportsnet’s twitter feed is well followed (over 15k followers), which one assumes means they’re diligent in their maintenance of said account. Well-followed Twitter accounts are a great way to drive followers to your most recent content, after all.
Long story short: we’re five days into their Twitter account getting hacked, and this is still going on. Not Safe For Work stuff, folks, so if you’re sensitive, go do something else.
By the way, I like that our friend Jesse Spector got some, uh, love from SNHockeyCentral:
