In this day and age, social media is necessary to pass along news and information. Twitter is a great example of this new age in reporting, but sometimes the noise can get too loud. Sports media on Twitter can get overcrowded and sometimes just downright overwhelming.
So, when you want to know more about the Boston Bruins, who do you turn to? Well, here is my list of ten Boston Bruins Twitter accounts to follow.

Starting with the obvious, the Boston Bruins official Twitter account. When other people report on Bruins news, nothing is more official than coming straight from the team. Full of quotes from players about the game and live Tweets during the game. The Twitter account is usually the first to break Bruins news.
Patrick Power, Jr.
