Carcillo on regrettable tweets: “live and learn”

Dan Carcillo has learned his lesson about Twitter. Think before you tweet. Then think about it again. Then right when you’re about to hit publish, have one more think about it.

That tidbit courtesy, which polled a handful of Blackhawks including Carcillo about their tweeting experiences.

“When I first got it, it was a little overwhelming. I’m pretty outspoken, and on that you have to think three or four times before you write it,” Carcillo said. “So it wasn’t a good fit in the beginning and so you live and learn.”

In case you’re wondering, he’s referring to this. (Parental guidance advised.)

Fortunately, he hasn’t dialed it back entirely, because that would be a shame. Carcillo (aka @CarBombBoom13) – whose tweets we’ve featured before on PHT — has almost 30,000 followers because he’s entertaining and opinionated, not vanilla. For example, can you guess what this tweet was about?


Steve Yzerman: furious.

In contrast to Carcillo, there’s teammate Steve Montador.

“I’m a little more private than Twitter typically allows for, so for the most part it’s something I’ll keep on the professional side,” Montador said.

And that’s why he only has 11,000 followers.

Of course, Montador also has an $11-million contract. He could never work again after he retires and still live comfortably.

Carcillo is looking down the road.

“It’s kind of just building your own name and getting it out there, outside of hockey if you have other interests,” he said. “You can see the advantages to it.”

Don’t see Montador with a radio show, do you?

    Funny, but not so good if you’re a pro hockey player. Some jokes have to be kept local. (and I say a turn-off)

    Comment deleted by PHT for pure idiocy.

      What an ignorant and boneheaded thing to say.

      Here’s a thought… your bigotry is apparent judging from your username and comment. It must suck to be small minded.

      God damnit, now I’m curious. D:

    Carcillo isn’t known for being all too bright…

    You can really get yourself in trouble with Twitter if you aren’t careful. Most of it is a big waste of time.
