Late yesterday evening Twitter was set ablaze with the news that Kevin Bieksa had finally joined Twitter! A campaign and petition has been floating around for months thanks to Pass it to Bulis (@PassittoBulis) to encourage Bieksa (aka Juice) to join Twitter and he has always steadfastly refused. Now, it seems Ryan Kesler has encouraged his teammate to join, and finally after 10 hours of no tweets and close to 15,000 18,400 followers, Juice jumped into the Tweet pool. Now the Vancouver Canucks hockey season can begin.

[Update Sept. 20, 7:51am: Bieksa now has close to 25,000 followers and two tweets — this must be a record for a Canuck on Twitter. Good luck Bieksa! Twitter-World can be a crazy, bizarre place at times!]
