Tiger Woods gives Twitter a try

Share This Story


Tiger Woods is now on Twitter.

Returning from a two-week trip to Asia and Australia, Woods posted his first tweet on Wednesday: ''What's up everyone. Finally decided to try out twitter!''

The Twitter account actually was launched in June, the name — ''TigerWoods'' — reserved about a year before that. The previous three tweets were to announce a new twitter page, website design and Facebook page.

The first tweet from Woods came at 11:08 a.m. Woods had just over 90,000 followers then, and within three hours, he had added over 40,000 more. A person confirmed that he was typing the tweet himself, and Woods added this: ''Yep, it's me. I think I like this twitter thing. You guys are awesome. Thanks for all the love.''


Look back at some of the women with whom Tiger Woods was linked to before his divorce.

''Tiger wants to do some things a little differently moving forward,'' said Mark Steinberg, his agent at IMG. ''He wants to be a little more connected to the fans, and this is just one new addition.''

Woods is scheduled to be a guest for two segments Thursday on ESPN Radio's ''Mike & Mike in the Morning.'' Steinberg said it has not been decided if Woods will make an appearance on television during the next few weeks.
