Chicago Bulls Beats Indiana Pacers April 18 - The Swirsk Twitter Effect

Did Chuck Swirsky's Tweets twitter.com/swirsk054 impact the Bulls-Pacers game? The Great Swirsk is the Bulls announcer. And Tweets like crazy during the game. Impact the game? Maybe not. He is changing how a game is called.

As a Bulls fan, I am blogging here prophetically, really hoping they win. They should win, but this is why there are playoffs -- to separate 'should' from 'did.'

Anyway, on Twitter, Swirsk has no voice. Not the one he is famous for, that is. However, in Tweeting, he kept me into the game in real time, better than Google's sports update and NBA.com
 
Thanks, Chuck.
