140 or Less: Kerby Rychel

by Kristyn Repke / Columbus Blue Jackets

Disclaimer: First round 2013 NHL Draft pick Kerby Rychel updates his Twitter account (@Krychs) on a daily basis. Even his cat (@TempletonJ) has an account. See what he had to say about Justin Bieber, the account he'd hack and his advice for fellow tweeters, then give him a follow.

Why did you start your Twitter account?

       Everyone was doing it, so I thought it would be a good idea to get on there.

Downfalls of having a Twitter account?

       When people tweet me for no reason, like when they chirp me. I just ignore them and laugh.

Favorite account to follow?

       Columbus Blue Jackets. (good answer)

What are you best at in the Twitterverse?

       Interacting with the fans. I think I'm pretty good at that and talking to them with my tweets.

Who would be your dream RT? (one person who you’d love to get RT’d by)

        Justin Bieber.

If you could hack one teammate’s account, who would it be?

      Brady Vail, for sure. He's my best friend on my team and we're kind of similar. We always go at each other on Twitter.

What did you learn at last night's social media etiquette class?

       Just that you've got to be careful about what you post on the internet, what you say in public and what you say on the internet. You just have to be really careful.

If you could give these prospects who are thinking about starting a Twitter account?

       Get on there. It's good because you get to build relationships with your friends and fans. It's good to interact and keep in touch with them.
