Few Bruins are on Twitter, and even fewer once the postseason rolls around and coach Claude Julien clamps down. Hopefully that changes, because basketball Twitter is infinitely more entertaining.

Vezina Trophy-winning goaltender Tuukka Rask, 28, made his Twitter debut Tuesday morning, and he’s already verified. Athlete Twitter accounts are all too often an uninteresting menagerie of protein supplement endorsements, premium autograph event announcements, and #brands #branding. Surely Rask, the short-tempered Finn once nominated “Most Metal Athlete” will provide us some white-hot, searing takes.

Oh.

Well, he’ll catch on. It shouldn’t be long until Rask sees how much Bruins fans truly appreciate his lights-out goaltending despite a Swiss cheese defense in front of him.

Oh.

On second thought, maybe tweeting is best left to Brad Marchand. It’s just no fun out here on the Internet, Tuukka.
