O.J. Simpson Joins Twitter: 'I've Got Some Getting Even To Do'

LOS ANGELES (WCBS 880/AP) — O.J. Simpson has launched a Twitter account with a video post in which the former football star says he's got a "little gettin' even to do."

Simpson confirmed the new account to The Associated Press on Saturday. Simpson said in a phone interview it will be a lot of fun and that he had some things to straighten out.

He did not elaborate before he said he had to go and ended the call.

In the video, Simpson said his Twitter followers would get to read all his thoughts and opinions on just about everything.

“Now coming soon to Twitter, you’ll get to read my thoughts and opinions on just about everything. Now there’s a lot of fake O.J. accounts out there, so this one — @TheRealOJ32 — is the only official one.”

Simpson ended the video by saying Twitter “should be a lot of fun” and "I’ve got a little getting even to do."

The 71-year-old recently told the AP he was happy and healthy living in Las Vegas 25 years after the grisly killings that transformed him from Hall of Fame football hero to murder suspect.
