Social Media of the Day - September 2011

Age: 17
Twitter Handle: @stephthorne94

How do you show your passion for the Canadiens through social media?

Through social media, we can connect with people who live very far away from us. I use that to my full advantage by following many Habs fans on Twitter, YouTube, and Tumblr. I've made some great friends from across the country through our passion for the Bleu, Blanc et Rouge. Also, I enter every contest put out by the Canadiens, follow all the players on Twitter and have even made a montage video from the 2010 Playoffs ( In the pictures I've submitted, you'll see my dad in his full Habs playoff gear (Habs Boxers, Habs T-Shirt, Habs PJ pants, Chris Higgins jersey, Habs hat, and his Habs beer glass), me rocking my Patrick Roy jersey and war paint during the 2011 playoffs, and myself, my dad and my sister sporting our “Game Faces” on the last game of the regular season.
