Penguins defensive prospect Joe Morrow tweeted out to 6,860 f0llowers Wednesday asking them for help. The cause? Bringing fellow Penguins prospect Beau Bennett back to the Twitter-sphere.
The tweet had reached 579 retweets six hours later and is awaiting 421 more retweets for the change to take effect.
Both Morrow and Bennett play for the Wilkes-Barre/Scranton Penguins and were expected to make waves in the NHL preseason to prove their worth in the NHL. Morrow has three points in 14 games played for the Penguins while Bennett has 13 points in 18 games. Prior to playing for the WBS Penguins, Morrow played for the Portland Winterhawks of the WHL while Bennett played for the University of Denver Pioneers.
Bennett’s return to Twitter campaign has attracted attention on other social media platforms such as Tumblr where many are spearheading efforts to bring him back. And why wouldn’t they want him back? It’s thanks to Bennett that this gold was introduced to the internet after Crosby returned from his concussion:
So please, for the sake of Twitter and Twitter gold, please go to Morrow’s twitter and help the cause, because the world needs more Beau Bennett tweets. Especially due to the fact that it was Bennett’s 21st birthday on Tuesday (Happy birthday Beau!) and the world was deprived of what was sure to be Twitter gold then.
