O.J. joins Twitter -- 'I got a little gettin' even to do'

O.J. Simpson appears at an evidentiary hearing in Clark County District Court in Las Vegas

O.J. Simpson appears at an evidentiary hearing in Clark County District Court in Las Vegas

According to his first post, a 22-second video that has been viewed nearly 2 million times in eight hours, Simpson declared: 'Hey Twitter world, this is yours truly.

As you might expect, the reactions to Simpson's arrival on Twitter were ruthless. "Coming soon to Twitter you'll get to read all my thoughts and opinions on just about everything", the former football great and accused killer says. I've got a little getting even to do. "It should be a lot of fun". The account, with its location tagged as Las Vegas, is authentic, confirmed Simpson's attorney, Malcolm LaVergne.

"Hey Twitter world, this is yours truly, and I'm coming soon to Twitter. I can't", one person responded. "What's your favorite place to purchase them from?"

The 71 year old's first post appeared late Friday and the account has already garnered more than 171,000 followers.

Khloe Kardashian just spoke about the rumour that she was Tristan's mistress
Khloe faced nearly the exact same experience as his ex Jordan after giving birth to their daughter True Thompson . Khloe is making it clear that that is her truth to the best of her knowledge.

But seconds later, the video turns, and Simpson announces how he's "got a lot of getting even to do" with some people on the social networking site - apparently because there are certain fake accounts impersonating him, or something?

In his recent interview, Simpson told the AP that neither he nor his children want to talk about the killings ever again. He will not be negative. Nor will he comment on the LA thing [emphasis ours]. "It will be one of the best accounts on Twitter to follow".

Los Angeles County prosecutors tried O.J.in what the media described as the "trial of the century".

Simpson was acquitted by a jury in 1995 and has continued to declare his innocence. Simpson was ordered to pay $33.5 million for the wrongful deaths of the two victims, but most of the judgment has not been paid.
