O.J. Simpson has arrived on social media.
Simpson's debut on Twitter comes days after the 25th anniversary of the murders of his ex-wife, Nicole Brown, and her friend Ron Goldman on June 12, 1994.
The account had over 100,000 followers in less than a day and the video was viewed more than 2.1 million times. O.J. Simpson and "The Juice is Loose" were trending on Twitter Saturday morning.
“Hey Twitter world this is yours truly,” Simpson says in the video. “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 getting even to do. So God bless. Take care.”
The Twitter bio reads, "If you don’t see it here, I didn’t say it" and lists Las Vegas as the location.
In keeping with Twitter norms, Simpson's arrival has led to multiple memes and parody accounts and swift reaction.
Simpson told the Associated Press this week that "life is fine" and he leads a "conflict-free life."
Twitter seems a strange place to stay free of conflict.
