Shaquille O'Neal, Twittering
For the last several months, an impostor was twittering as Shaquille O’Neal, so O'Neal did what any sensible, 7-foot-1, muscle-bound basketball star would do. He put his cyber foot down and started twittering himself as THE_REAL_SHAQ, the New York Times reports.
Pushing out updates at a rapid-fire clip from his phone, almost once an hour, often blowing right past the 140 character limit, Shaq's tweets are boastful, a little demented, and oddly poetic. And a lot of them are about food.
He asks his followers for advice about lunch:
I need help subway or schlotsskys for lunch, big game tonite
And then reports back:
Subway it is turkey n cheese um um um lol
He's got short-form restaurant reviews:
Im at a italian restaraunt, the fettucini was fabuloso
Live dining status:
Im at dinner wit the wifey deluxe burger in phoenix, um um um
And even updates on his diet and the temptations he faces every day:
ABOUT TO EAT DINNER, I PASSED UP 20 MCDONALDS TODAY. I COULDNT DO IT I'M ON A DIET,BUT MCDONALDS FRIES R THE BEST UM UM UM
