Former NFL great O.J. Simpson has a Twitter account and he may be using it to get even with a few people.
The account appears to have been created Friday and it only has one tweet so far — a video greeting from Simpson.
"Hey Twitter world this is yours truly,” Simpson declares in a video posted at his new account. “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. So, it should be a lot of fun. I got some gettin’ even to do. So God bless. Take care.”
As of Saturday morning, the video has been played 2.19 million times and @TheRealOJ32 account has 102K followers. The reaction on Twitter has been mixed. Some people seemed outraged, calling him a murderer, while others seem simply amused.

Despite the thousands of followers, Simpson is only following 4 accounts as of this writing — @USC_FB, @HeismanTrophy, @JSimpsonSells (possibly his son) and @SinCityAttorney, the account belonging to his Las Vegas lawyer Malcolm LaVergne.
Wow, Mr. Simpson @TheRealOJ32 just got on Twitter late last night, posted one tweet, and now almost has nearly 50,000 Twitter followers early the next morning. Isn’t even verified yet. To all the haters, take notice! M.— Malcolm LaVergne (@SinCityAttorney) June 15, 2019
Simpson, who was acquitted of the murders of his ex-wife Nicole Brown Simpson and Ronald Goldman 25 years ago, moved to Las Vegas after he was released from prison for committing armed robbery at Palace Station hotel-casino in Las Vegas.
