Tweeting Tiger: Woods using social media more often, thanks to Vonn

Tiger Woods has 3.7 million Twitter followers but it’s a safe bet he doesn’t spend much time checking his account.

Indeed, it’s a safe bet Woods doesn’t quite get what Twitter’s all about.

"I’m still a little bit old school," he said when asked about the social media network.

"I’m kind of getting towards it, but still not quite grasping the whole concept yet."

That said, Woods posted five tweets in the past two days; as prolific as it gets for the 14-time major champion.

"I’m hot, aren’t I?" he joked.

He admitted his girlfriend, Lindsey Vonn, is behind the surge.

"As far as her convincing me to tweet more, yes, she certainly has hinted that," he said.

"But I grew up in a different era, and it’s a little bit different for me. But I’ll get there eventually."
