In the Twitter video, Simpson said his followers would get to read all his thoughts and opinions on "just about everything".
Simpson confirmed the new account to The Associated Press on Saturday, saying in a phone interview while on a Las Vegas golf course that it "will be a lot of fun".
The former National Football League star who was accused of the brutal murder of his ex-wife, Nicole Brown Simpson, and her friend, Ron Goldman, shared a video of himself on what appears to be a golf course, telling followers to stay tuned for updates. "I got a little getting even to do", he said, smiling. "So God bless. Take care". Getting even... with the fake account impersonators? In less than twelve hours, his announcement garnered over 11.000 retweets, 33,000 likes, and 8,600 replies.
Just 12 hours after sharing his debut post, Simpson now has 132,000 Twitter followers - and counting.
