I’ll Tweet You For It by Tracy Hackler

In case you missed it, St. Louis Blues forward David Perron is celebrating the signing of his new deal by giving his Twitter followers a chance to win an autographed stick directly from him.

The budding star announced the contest, which ends on Wednesday, in late July by asking fans to prove their Perron fandom with a picture.

Perron has been rather enlightening with his tweets by giving fans insightful information (sometimes in French). He clearly enjoys communicating with hockey fans in the offseason.

He’s already amassed more than 13,000 followers thanks to his popular teammates – defenseman Erik Johnson and tough guy Cam Janssen. Johnson, it should be noted, will be giving some money to charity for reaching 15,000 followers and Janssen is planning an opening night ticket giveaway for his 6,000th follower. He hasn’t reached that number just yet.

Lagging behind is teammate Patrik Berglund, who is hoping to reach 10,000 followers and will donate $5,000 to charity as well; currently he has less than 4,000. The money will be donated to an as yet undetermined cause, but the Berglund camp is soliciting advice on that.
