    Your favorite figure skater in social media

    So, which figure skaters have your favorite social media? Anything from Twitter, blogs, YouTube channels, etc.

    I am having a blast looking through Misha Ge's 4CC pics being relayed through this forum's Twitter feed. As someone who doesn't really do that sort of thing (I don't even have a FaceBook account), well, I am quite enjoying his Tweeting.

    Misha Ge, Kaetlyn Osmond and D/W. +Shibs on YouTube.

    I want to thank Misha Ge for uploading photos from 4CC I really enjoyed seeing them.

    I don't use facebook very often and don't use twitter but only recently enjoyed some skaters twitters listed here on GS so not hard to miss. Misha Ge has good photos and seems interesting and Eric Radford has had some nice photos too as well as a few others.

    Agree with Misha Ge and the Shibs, another one I might add is Akiko Suzuki's blog, she posts about different aspects of her life and someone on the internet makes English versions of the entries.

    Thanks for starting the thread.

    Agree with those listed above, esp. Maia and Alex Shibutani.

    - Mervin Tran ‏@skate_moivo

    - Jeremy Ten ‏@j3r3bear

    - Zachary Donohue @Z_Donohue

    Can't believe that I forgot to mention the extremely personable Jason Brown earlier.

    So far he has written guest blogs for Ice Network at two competitions, and they were full of life and joy.

    His good cheer makes me smile, and I hope that he will write more.

    I agree! I couldn't help but smile all the way through his blogs.

    I hope he makes good on that promise to Mr Buckley at Nationals and gets a Twitter.

    Speaking of Twitter, some of the interactions between Joshua Farris (@joshDfarris), Angela Wang (@angelawangster), Timothy Dolensky (@TimDolensky), Max Aaron (@MaxTAaron) and the other Broadmoor skaters are really hilarious.

    I'm also Facebook friends with two skaters (both mentioned above) and they are just so sweet and nice, and one of them has a slight addiction problem with his !!! and the capslock button! Some of the pictures are just

    karne, thanks for the information that Jason Brown promised to get a Twitter account (I was not aware). If/when he does, I hope that you will post his Twitter handle in this thread.

    Absolutely agree that the Twitter conversations among skaters -- whether scattered across the globe or clustered at one rink -- show wonderful camaraderie. Very endearing.

    Have you all noticed the twitter feed that GS has on the main page, right hand side, at the very bottom of the page?
