So, most everyone should now know I got a new cellphone, my first in quite a while. Tonight was a hockey game in Outlook, and I cover them for the paper, but I also announce at them as well. But tonight I did something else. I live tweeted the entire thing.
I could have gone further and added who scored, but damn that Blackberry keyboard is tiny. Take some getting used to.
However, this isn’t a bad idea, and I think it should be something suggested on the Sask Valley Hockey League forums. Live tweet the games, using the hashtag #svhl. If you’ve got a camera phone, upload a picture with the tweet. It worked out okay tonight. I think I’ll do that for other games as well, it’s a quick way to check on scores via twitter.
After all, I’ve never seen this in the SVHL before. Good way to intermingle the league and social networking.
