Paulina Gretzky, the 22-year-old daughter of The Great One, has closed her Twitter account. And it appears her father encouraged her to do so, at least according to this story in the Montreal Gazette:
"Having a nice sit down dinner with my dad about social media..haha," Paulina Gretzky tweeted last week before closing her account.
That's Paulina on the right in the above photo. She looks an awful lot like her mother, actress Janet Jones. Paulina apparently has done some modeling, acting, and singing, but she earned greater notoriety of late the new-fashioned way: by publicly posting party photos on the Internet. Her adventures caught the attention of The Chive a couple of weeks back, and the Toronto Star has speculated that her father encouraged her to knock it off because his name has been linked to a group that might buy the Maple Leafs. Fear not, those of you chagrined you missed out on Paulina's Twitter adventures: The Vancouver Sun took the trouble of posting a gallery that includes 40 of her greatest hits.
