right another Olympics sounds good to me too!
Dubreuil and Lauzon just added another coach to their team... here's to hoping they add a couple more ice dancers as well
And not some random coach. It's Romain Haguenauer!
This is O/T? But is this Tessa's twitter? https://twitter.com/VirtueTessa
I think it's real, but it's so weird. Don't you think it's weird that she all of a sudden has a twitter account?
If Tessa Virtue has decided to join Twitter, I would think she would have her account verified (all Olympians seem to be verified, for example): https://support.twitter.com/groups/...tures/articles/119135-about-verified-accounts
Skate Canada would tweet/post confirmation if it is really her account, but there are no tweets yet.
Her brother is following it.
Let's see how many followers the account gets before the first tweet! I see 46 now.
It seems real to me ... maybe the twitter takeover on the Olympic team twitter convinced her?
Ok so checked who or what she followed , she follows their book publisher, their management compagny , the Canadian Olympic Team, the W Network so I think I'm convinced its hers , and like you said her brother is following.Let's hope there are some tweets soon!
Perhaps the twitter takover convinced her to get a twitter?
Over 200 maybe she is going to reach a thousand before the first tweet!
I just tried the link and it says the page doesn't exist.
The twitter account is now gone. Lol these people are really crazy.
The name changed to @tessavirtue it's still there
Tessa is still there! Her twitter handle just changed https://twitter.com/tessavirtue
Oh I see. Thanks guys!
I would be very skeptical unless Skate Canada confirms that Tessa is on twitter.
Gotta love the swimsuit and the tan. If it's not official the photo is still WOW!
I don't think they will either way. It's probably not gonna be used really I think, but why would both their agent, Danny Fritz, and her brother, Casey Virtue, be following a fake account?
Maybe to find out what's going on? There have been quite a few Tessa imposters on social media. But at any rate, time will tell.
OMG, is this really happening? If it's true, I hope she'll post often and more. I mean the tour in China is coming up. There would be tons of pix to post. And what about Scott? I hope he get one, too. They were so good for the parade. Make it a regular thing!
I'm certain its her. Where would a faker get that photo of Tessa? And Casey and Danny never followed fake accounts in the past.
The account shows 18following, mostly people she is friends with, works with or related to her. I think it must be genuine. Either that, or there are a lot of other fake accounts out there
18 following means she is following 18 people, not the other way around. So it confirms nothing.
Tessa and Scott were both on Twitter right after the Olys. At that point, both accounts were followed by Skate Canada and icedance.com (I think I remember Skate Canada welcoming them both to Twitter) so it sounded legit. But both accounts disappeared after 3 months or so.
When show in China will be and when they will work with young skaters in Montreal?
