    Trying to be creative here, and am coming up short... am interested to see if others can come up with some witty and clever responses...

    I am fascinated with skater's use of twitter/facebook as PR. Some use it incessantly (A.Wagner, J.Abbott), some use it occasionally (M.Davis) and others don't use it at all (A.Czisny, T.Virtue). And even some past champions are using it to re-energize their otherwise dead careers (S.Hughes, T.Lipinski)

    I am interested to think what skaters of the past may have "tweeted" during their careers if twitter had been around at that time....

    And you know this is their intention how? :rolleyes:

    Sarah Hughes: I won gold@Olympics. Uh oh. Some fans are never going to let this go!

    Tara Lipinski: I won gold@Olympics. Uh oh. Some fans are never going to let this go!

    MWK: Who, me "gutted"? Nah, spark is my M.O.

    On second thought, MWK doesn't "tweet" now and wouldn't have if Twitter had been around in the past, although she does seem to enjoy and is gracious enough to post annual Christmas greetings to her fans on MKF.

    I keep coming up blank on this myself, but I would pledge my undying love and positive rep to anyone who writes a twitter conversation between Usova and Gritshuk circa early 1990's.
